|Me & Sean Rowland at Ripken Stadium|
It worked out well since I was able to get out of Baltimore quickly. Luckily I was able to dodge pockets of traffic on I-95 which allowed me to get to Ripken Stadium, home of the Aberdeen Ironbirds at 5:15PM. Upon arrival, I got a ticket and I headed inside. Shortly after the game started, Sean came over to where I was sitting and we enjoyed each other's company. He then went back to see his wife after we spoke for a little while. He told me he'll come back later in the game. True to his word, he came back with his wife, Cheryl who he introduced me to. It was nice to see him again.
As for the game we saw, it was very sloppy to say the least. The Ironbirds made a bunch of errors. They were fortunate that they were only charged with four. It should have been more. It was that bad. Since this was a low level minor league game, I wasn't too surprised with the quality of play but this game was really hard to watch. The visiting Crosscutters wound up beating the Ironbirds, 8-6.
After the game, I walked Sean & Cheryl back to their car in the parking lot. We said our goodbyes and we went our separate ways. Hopefully we'll meet up again down the road.
On my way home, I stopped off for some gas and a made to order chicken cheesesteak hoagie at Wawa's. I ate it in the car then I drove back home. Thankfully I wasn't working that Monday.
Stay tuned for a special post that will detail how I spent my day off.
Thank you for reading and following along.
