Batter Up

One of the many perks of living in Florida is spring training baseball!
With Greg being a huge baseball fan, we usually try to hit up at least one game each year.
The Grapefruit League has teams all over the state of Florida and several in central Florida.
The Atlanta Braves spring training facility is right down the road at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Saturday was Kenley’s first baseball game!
We were lucky enough to come across tickets to the Braves v. Yankees full squad game at Disney.
We were able to see a lot of big name players and the day was absolutely perfect.
It was overcast most of the day plus our seats were in the shade right behind home plate, a rare commodity.

Of course we had to wear our Mets gear to show those Yankees and Braves fans
that we weren’t rooting for either of their teams.
But I’m sure they all fell sorry for us since we are, in fact, Mets fans.

NFL star and former Hoosier, the “law firm”, BenJarvus Green-Ellis threw out the first pitch with Mickey Mouse!

Kenley was great! She rode around in the Ergo almost the entire time
and even had a little rest right when the game started.

A-Rod!

Overall, it was a very successful trip and first baseball game experience!
We even captured the little one laughing!
It cracks me up that my obnoxious noises were so funny to her.
