Sights at a baseball park
The Gateway Arch in the background gives away any secret of where I was today. The St. Louis Cardinals played the Cincinnati Reds, their rival this year in the NL Central Division. I went with my two brothers and one of my sisters.
A holiday weekend, time at the ballpark, and the smell of food in the air is a terrific combination. The smell was hard to resist. Nothing's better that watching your favorite team and munching on something good. Besides the obligatory hot dogs, they had Philly cheese steaks, nachos, BBQ sandwiches and lots of cold drinks, ice cream and other stuff, too.
The temperature was around 80F -- just right for a baseball game.
Fredbird (above) is the official mascot.
The ground crew above keeps the field in good shape.
The Cards won 4-2 and Matt Holiday hit the winning home run.
