The Big A

Anahiem has a beautiful ballpark and the waterfall in center makes you feel like you are in Southern California. Anahiem was the first ballpark to shoot fireworks during the National Anthem which was nice touch. It made the song have more power. The waterfall shoots water after home runs which was a nice touch also. Sitting about 15 rows back of the third base dugout ( thanks to the generosity of the Angels media department ) we saw a pitchers duel. Bartalo Colon took the mound for the Angels and Mark Burhele was on the hill for the Sox’s. They both pitched great but Burhele pitched nine strong innings and the Sox’s won in eleven innings.

Now the fun stuff. Dodger dogs are everything they are built up to be but they lost a close battle to the dogs at Petco field in San Diego.

Sean’s hot dog rankings: 1) Petco Park (SD) 2) Dodger Stadium (LA) 3) Wrigley Field (CHI) 4) Camden Yards (BAL) 5) Anahiem Stadium (LAA) 6) Yankee Stadium (NYY) 7) U.S. Cellular Field (CWS) 8) Shea Stadium (NYM) 9) RFK Stadium (NAT) 10) Jacobs Field (CLE) 11) Busch Stadium (STL) 12) Fenway Park (BOS) 13) The Great American Ballpark (CIN)


I’m glad that you had a good time at the Big A. I agree that the fireworks during the National Anthem are a nice touch (it’s something I’ve always liked). Too bad you were at Game 2 of the series instead of Game 1. Both games were pretty good pitchers duels (we just won the first game…our rookie, Ervin Santana, pitched a complete game shutout in his second career ML game).

Hello Sean (my Mexican Friend) and Kevin,
Stumbled upon this site… Very Cool. When are you coming home? Logan wants to see you. He’s 10 months now and took his first steps the other day. Can’t wait until he can play ball. Hope you’re having fun. See you soon… SEA KELP 🙂

Love Tandy
