Back in 1977 I went to see my first professional baseball game at the Houston Astrodome. It was a reward for attending all 5 days of VBS at Kirby Baptist Church. Although my parents were both Massachusetts natives and I was and am a Boston Red Sox fan, it was a day I have never forgotten. It was at the old Astrodome and it was the first time I had seen professional baseball live and in person. I will never forsake the Red Sox, but I am happy for the Astros fans and could not help thinking about that day in 1977 before cell phones, social media and the internet last night when H-Town won it all.
