New York Mets vs. San Diego Padres
Mets won 5 to 1

It was a three-hour drive into San Diego from our hotel, even though the GPS assured us it was ninety minutes (which it was coming home after the game)! We thought that leaving at 2:00 would avoid rush hour, but apparently not. Parked about two blocks away, took the elevator, walked right into section 117 and sat down. While I was out getting a drink, Jim found out we were in the wrong place — we were in row 44 and our seats were in row 1! First time he ever got to sit right on field level so that was a nice surprise. Almost forgot, the ball girl gave him a game ball as well.

When the guy moved his chair I could see the pitcher between him and the ball girl.

Jim learned to take a selfie!  Me and the Padre.

Looking up and the Scoreboard.

I had never had one before. It is basically fried dough, somewhat like a donut, covered with cinnamon sugar.
