Yankees vs. Nationals! Bryce Harper, Alex Rodriguez and a few other guys I had heard of and many more that I hadn’t. That is 2015 Major League Baseball for me and many more. The average guy, like me, that played baseball as a youngster and collected baseball cards, knew almost all of the players on all of the teams. Now, I’m more of a casual fan, I root for the Mets and I am, dare I say, a fair-weather fan of the game.
Still there is nothing like going out to the ballgame with a few friends and sharing laughs and good times. And that is exactly what we did with the day capped off with some great seafood from Sammy’s Fish Box* on City Island. The newest incarnation of The House that Ruth Built is a splendor and something that all sports fans, especially baseball fans need to visit at least once.
For all baseball is not these days, it still remains in my opinion, the best sports value for the buck and the game with the greatest tangible advantage to live viewing. Attending a baseball game live allows you the opportunity to watch whatever or whomever you would like whereas television viewing tends to focus on the pitcher and batter. Needless to say, I spent most of my time watching Bryce Harper’s play in the field; A-Rod was the DH, so I watched the Nationals hitters when the Yankees were playing the field. Would have been better to see the game the night before with Masahiro Tanaka and Max Scherzer.
I viewed the game from the Mohegan Sun Sports Bar in center field; I know most purist will say that’s not watching the game, but for a guy like me that does not like the elements…I Love It! And I am so looking forward to my next visit to a stadium and my recap right here on ADSL
*Try the seafood risotto. Excellent!
