Wow! It’s like being a college kid again. Char and I took off for Duluth tonight to see Nate and the Border Cats play baseball, then turned around and headed right home. These are the playoffs. They lost last night in Thunder Bay, but managed a 1-0 win tonight in Duluth. One of the best baseball games I have ever attended. Score was 0-0 until the top of the 9th when the Cats managed to score a runner from first on a double by a teammate. Quite an exciting finish. We sat with our friends from Thunder Bay, and they were a very enthusiastic crowd. Nate did not have a good night at the plate, going 0-4 at bat. However, his defense at first was great, highlighted by an 8th inning diving catch for out number one, followed by a double play.
Getting out of town took some time, although we made the trip in 2 hours 45 minutes from our house to the ball park. The trip home was faster, 2:15. Remarkable how easy that drive is when there is no traffic.
