No Victorino or Rollins since they're playing for the USA team in the WBC, but we were treated to Ryan Howard, Albert Pujols, Matt Stairs and a pile of pitchers. No Moyer or Hamels or Lidge, of course.
You can walk the whole way around the stadium and out here is the lawn seating. Excellent day for a game...83F, partly cloudy and a very nice breeze.
Looks about the same size as Clipper Magazine Stadium and this place is PACKED. The official attendance was 10,355 people and it looked there were actually that many people in the place.
It's on the other side of the state but I'm confident I'll be able to see it. Stay tuned for a picture, if they actually light it and it's at all possible.
Kind of reminds me of the surface pictures taken by the Mars rovers. Except instead of rocks it's shells. It looks the same no matter how close or how far you are. Hence, fractal.
It's amazing how happy and friendly northerners can be when it's not sterile, cold and grey for the 21st week in a row. I've seen people in Phillies garb all over the place, all smiling, chatting and quick with a "Hello". Back in Philly, the only exercise they probably get is the middle finger on the Schuykill Expressway.
