Our family has gone to more Indianapolis Indians games this season than I think we have every other season combined perhaps. This week, we attended three games and enjoyed every one of them, even though the Indians lost two of them closely to the Columbus Clippers. Our first game this week was on Tuesday night, the Indians trailed the entire game. Then, in the last inning with two outs, the Indians pulled together a string of hits to tie the game and force extra innings. They eventually rallied to win the game. Many fans left early. It was kind of chilly and breezy all evening and thinking it was over, the ballpark had almost emptied. My family and I hung around. For me, for a variety of reasons, the least of which wasn’t the fact that if I go to an event like this, I stay until the last out, the final minute, the ending bell.
We’ve taken advantage of the Knot Hole Kids Club, so that our kids get in free or we upgrade their seats to box seats for a small price. By taking advantage of this and other ticket deals like 2-for-1 Tuesdays with McAlister’s and other ticket promos, it makes for a good 3-4 hours together as a family and lots of fun at an absolutely gorgeous Victory Field ballpark.
We’ve been laughing a bit amongst ourselves though because as much as we love the Indians, it appears we just can’t get any love from them! They do a Twitter photo promo during the game where you send a picture of yourself having fun at the Indians game and tweet it to their Twitter account @IndyIndians with the hashtag #ComeCelebrateSummer. We do this every game and we’ve yet to get our photo on the big screen! Apparently my face is just too hideous to be enlarged onto the jumbotron. Here are a couple of the photos we’ve posted that haven’t been chosen.
