Wow, its been a busy week keeping up with the Phillies down here in DC. After three straight low scoring games the Phils evened up the season series with the Nats. The 4:35 start of yesterday’s game made for some interesting shadows. We know it’s important to factor in the sun’s path across the sky when building a ball field, but you should also keep it in mind when picking seats. Wrigley was freezing behind the plate in the shade and swirling winds; how I envied the bleacher bums sitting smugly in their sun. Yesterday, it was a similar situation but I was fortunate to have friends sitting in centerfield – not that I didn’t have my pick of centerfield seats at cavernous RFK. Nonetheless the Nats budget stadium is a great place to take in a game.
More Phillies games to follow: I’ll be there Saturday night versus Florida. Who wants to party?!
