Yesterday's D-Backs Game

Yesterday we headed over to Chase Field for one last time this season. We had a great time as usual. On Sundays the Diamondbacks hold a "Kids Run the Bases" event after the game. We had never done that before so my son was excited. Normally this is only for kids under thirteen but yesterday they invited all fans to go out onto the field so I got to run around with him. It was cool.

During the game we were also given wrist bands by a friendly season ticket holder. They gave us access to attend a special autograph session with a few players after the game. I guess she didn't want to stay and thought we might like to go. She was right.

It was pretty awesome even though we didn't have any cards or anything with us. Luckily they had some promo 5x7 photos available at the autograph table. These are just like the ones we got signed at Fan Fest back in February. They're still much better than the boring head shot they sometimes give out at these types of things.

We went home with signed photos of Kirk Gibson, Matt Lindstrom, Gerardo Parra, Takashi Saito, and Brad Ziegler. That was a nice surprise.
