Unfortunately, we weren’t playing baseball, actually that was probably quite fortunate, since none of the family has even a modicum of skill at the sport (which suddenly strikes me as ironic since our family actually has enough children to make our own baseball team).
Instead of playing the sport, we were playing music, which for me was actually far more fun, so i’d like to extend a big thanks to the Kiwanis Club having us out yesterday! We had a stupendous time and the Lakeland Flying Tigers were kind enough to video one of our songs and live stream it on their Facebook page! You should really check out the video on their page, Lakeland Flying Tigers Baseball, not for my sake…well kind of for my sake, but also to show support for the Kiwanis Club and The Home of the Flying Tigers!
After our performance we watched Kathryn Koch and some other skilled dancers from Care to Dance. We had a great time clapping and stamping to the music. They even let us join in the last dance!
Then we walked around the newly refurbished Joker Marchant Stadium. It was truly a beautiful ballpark. I’ve only been to a baseball game two or three times in my life (I know, I’m a terrible American), but this magnificent park made me nostalgic for the unique experience of baseball, the cheer of the crowd, the thrill of the game, and the taste of warm hot dog, an experience I’ve never had. Here’s a picture Nicholas took of the park.
In case you can’t tell from the above four paragraphs, we had a lot of fun and hope to come back soon to watch and maybe play there again some time, maybe we can play a game against the Tigers!…the team, not the real kind.
