I went to my first live MLB game last month..Astros vs. Brewers, 2-1 Astros, bottom of 9th, 2 out, Bagwell off the DL, base hit, game winning hit. A classic game. 31,000 in attendance. I got a great seat, almost over home plate, $40.00US. Minute Maid Field, brand new, sparkling sports arena.
Pity they don't play actual sports there.
Actually it was OK, almost as good as a 0-0 draw in a normal everyday football match in England. Only snag, I didn't realize that the "7th inning stretch" meant "no more booze sold."
Pity the poor sods who watched the Astros vs. Braves 18 inning marathon the other day! I'm sorry, baseball and no booze do not mix. The game is not interesting enough!
