As a result, we decided to walk away and press our luck on the street instead. Luckily I ran into a guy who said he wanted $40 for a pair of tickets on the lower level in section 229. He said there were his season tickets. Without hesitation, I grabbed them for the King & I. We still needed one more for Dave. He wound up getting a single near us in the same section for $20 he said. Ironically I planned to meet some fellow roadtrippers at the game who had seats in section 130 which was right below where our seats were. I'm referring to Bob DeVries and his lovely wife Charlie. They were there with their friends Kristin & Dan who they introduced me to. It was great to see them again.

It was so cool to see the holy grail in baseball heaven. It was fitting indeed.
After the game, on the way back to the car we stopped off at Artemio's Bakery and we got some cookies before we hit the road.
Dave along with the King and I proceeded to drive to Indianapolis where we were spending the night before we continued on to Cincinnati to see the Reds play on Sunday afternoon.
Stay tuned for a special post that will go into further detail about that day.
Thank you for reading and following along.
