adding insult to injury

Open Air Baseball

I never thought I’d be a big proponent of a new Twins stadium, but an evening watching the Riverbats outdoors makes me wish the Twins had at least a retractable dome. Riverbats baseball is better than going to a Twins game in so many ways. To name a few… The most expensive tickets are $6.50. Parking is free. Beer is cheaper. They pick a player on the other team who is labeled the Beer Batter, and if he strikes out, beer the rest of the inning is half off (That’s $1.50!). You get to sit up close. It’s a mile from home, for me anyway. It’s halfway good baseball, consisting mostly of good college players. Did I mention it’s outdoors?
