Take me out to the ballgame

Above: Autozone Park is the home of the Memphis Redbirds.

It's not summer without baseball, right? Thursday night I visited Autozone Park in downtown Memphis to see the Redbirds play the Albuquerque Isotopes, Los Angeles Dodgers' AAA farm club.

Yes, there were fast balls and stolen bases. Yes, there were hot dogs and tons of other good food. Hot dogs always taste better at a ball game.

Above: In the middle of the seventh inning, fans stood and sang "Take Me Out To the Ball Game."


  1. Everybody knows the Isotopes don't play in your neck of the woods. Or Memphis is really near Springfield -- not Sparky one but Homer Simpson's one.

    Did you see him at the game? Were they serving Duff's?

  2. I know almost nothing about baseball but I do know those words and the tune-A very American set of great photos- looks like fun,
