Staycation - Atlanta Braves

For our last big adventure on our Staycation, we headed to Turner Field to watch the Atlanta Braves take on the Pittsburg Pirates. The game didn't start til after 7:00 pm, but let me tell you, it was still hot! But we had GREAT seats, down on the lowest level out in left field - and most importantly, in the shaded section of the stadium while the sun was still high in the sky.


And then... the sky started looking funny! These odd-colored clouds moved in, a few sprinkles fell from the sky, and the bottom dropped out. Boy, did it rain! We headed into the concourse to wait out the rain delay, which lasted a good long while. But finally, the rain stopped and play resumed.

I was excited to be at the Braves game (my first in Turner Field since 2007), but I wasn't expecting to see my favorite player since he was injured. But in the 7th inning, with the Braves trailing, the entire stadium went wild to see CHIPPER JONES walking to the plate as designated hitter. Oh my! It was so cool to see him bat... even if he did swing at the first pitch and hit it straight to one of the inn-fielders. But I was really glad to see #10, Chipper Jones, at least one more time. What a great night with my family (other than the Braves getting a loss)!
