On April 5th, Julie and I, along with my Dad, Jacob and Caleb, ventured over to the Ballpark in Arlington for opening day–the Rangers vs. the Blue Jays. While I’ve attended 9 straight opening days, most with my Dad, and one of the boys, this was the first time that all 4 Daneman men attended opening day together. I had to pull the boys from school early, but it was after roll was taken, and they’ve done so good in the classroom this year, that that really didn’t matter–they’d earned a little break.
The game was pretty boring, as the Blue Jays shut the Rangers bats down for the first 6 innings, with a no-hitter. But in the 7th inning, the Rangers bats came alive to tie the game. Although the Rangers would give up the lead in the bottom of the 7th, they fought back and came through in the clutch, with a bottom of the 9th rally.
A fun time was had by all, even Julie, who was a real trooper going to the game while 2 weeks away from her due date!
