Last year was one of the first times I’d ever been to a baseball game other than a Chicago White Sox game. Let me back-track, and and tell you how this going to baseball games got started. When my family and I lived in Chicago, we used to go to White Sox games. The year I moved to the Mary Bryant Home, my brother EJ ordered tickets for the whole family to go to a Sox game on the 4th of July. If I remember correctly, we were somewhere along first or third base. My dad asked my mom and I if we wanted to trade place with him and my brother, but we said we were fine where we sat. Little did any of us know that I would end up regretting that decision. Somewhere around the sixth or seventh inning, I got Beaned by a foul ball hit be the opposing team. Thankfully, I was all right, and I didn’t suffer a scratch. I haven’t been beaned by any foul balls at the Sliders games that I’ve been to in the years I’ve been living at the Mary Bryant Home. These games are just as exciting as actual Major League baseball games. The normal routine is that we usually get something to eat before or during the game. This time around, we were given he option of eating here at the Home or waiting until we were at the game. Usually during the game, the Public Address man will announce the scores throughout the rest of baseball. He also announces who is up to bat, and other points of the game. I like that because, when you are legally blind, it makes being able to see what’s going on during the game difficult.
