It was a nearly perfect day here in Clearwater Sunday, Cole Hamels on the mound and hounds in the stands–it was Bark in the Park.
Hamels did well, though he gave up two home runs—to the same guy!
Here he is as the first batter—hitting the first home run.
To me, it was one of my favorite games of the year, Bark in the Park. We have a 7 year old shih tzu named Veronica. She’s one of a kind. She loves baseball almost as much as I do. Every time we ask her if she wants to go to a game she goes nuts.
Here she is in her jersey sitting in my season ticket seat. Also notice her Reading Phillies leash.
We couldn’t stay there in the sun so we moved back into the shade. She also has a little baseball cap.
She loves to see the other dogs and actually will sit and watch the game. She’s usually pretty vigilant until about the seventh and by the bottom of the eighth, she was worn out.
While the Threshers lost, we still had a great time.
