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.
