Great Baseball Day

This is the last day of my vacation except for flying home tomorrow.

It was a great baseball day.

We spent the afternoon in Oklahoma City watching the OKC Redhawks lose to the New Orleans Zephyrs. The temperature was in the high eighties, a few clouds to bring some much needed shade occacionally. A steady wind blowing in that helped as well.

It was a good game until the tenth inning, but OKC then fell apart.

It's a beautiful stadium though. I took quite a few pictures and will be sharing them with you.

After the game we ate at Mickey Mantle's restaurant across the street. It was great too and I'll have more information for you in the next day or two.

When we got to our hotel, I watched most of the second College World Series game between North Carolina and Oregon State University. I'm not usually a fan of higher scoring games, but this was fun and exciting.

I'm now watching the Astros beating the Whitesox. It's the top of the ninth and the score is 9 to 5.

Mickey Mantle's Home Part I

I went to a family reuninion yesterday in Spavinaw, Oklahoma, the birthplace of Mickey Mantle. I'll have a few pictures in the next few days or so.

I didn't do that great yesterday on my prediction.

I missed the Reds over the Indians and the Cards over the Tigers. My prediction rate was 60% and since it's the first time I've done it this year, my YTD percentage is also 60%.

I'm hoping to make it to Oklahoma City in time to attend the OKC game against New Orleans. I'll let you know tomorrow how it turns out.
