Baseball Fever

SDP  1-28-13
Kim, Kim and Cindy are just three of the many baseball fans who patiently waited in line at Ed Smith Stadium Saturday afternoon to purchase Baltimore Orioles spring training tickets the first day individual game tickets went on sale.  From what I hear, the Orioles' webpage and phone lines were jammed with people wanting to snap up tickets.  These ladies showed up in person to secure seats to the Orioles-Rays game.  Their kids play on a team called the Rays in the Miracle League, a baseball program for disabled children and young adults.  And, the Baltimore Orioles sponsor the league, so the Orioles-Rays game is a favorite with their families.  This was the first time I'd heard about the Miracle League and it sounds very interesting.  They play near the SDP headquarters, so I'm looking forward to checking it out in March.  My mom, who was a special education teacher, would have really enjoyed knowing such a program  exists.  Hope everyone has a great time at the Orioles-Rays game!

I am surprised to see women waiting for these tickets. But guess there are fans of all kinds!

Nice portraits and nice to know the Orioles sponsor the Miracle League. Sounds like you may have some new go-to events to check out!

Great portrait of three very beautiful women!

I think spring training games are much more fun than the real thing - but that's just me!

Play ball! I am having a hard time getting excited about baseball this year because the Red Sox are probably not going to be very good. But, I have spring training tickets for February 21 and it should be fun.

Hartford also has a Miracle League field and I posted something about it in the fall.
