Wilmington Blue Rocks

Surprisingly enough to me, the kids decided that they wanted to go to Wilmington to see a Blue Rocks baseball game. The Blue Rocks play class "A" ball in the Carolina league (Kansas City Royals system). The games are always fun, it is a cheap evening, and you get to sit very close to the field.

We went last night, sat 6 rows behind the first base dugout, and had a lot of fun. Whether they are a good team or not, they always seem to lose when we go, but we got lucky and saw a win last night (8-4 over the Frederick Keys, the Orioles minor league team).

As usual with class A baseball, we saw a wide assortment of good plays, bad plays, and everything in between. For the most part, you don't have to be a major league general manager to see that most of these kids have no shot of ever making the major leagues, but they try hard, and it is interesting to try to see who looks like they do have the tools to perhaps make it some day.

The kids asked to go this once, and hopefully they will ask again soon.
