Went to the ball game today...
Let's not talk about the final score...it was a nice day...and a pretty good game until the bottom of the ninth!
but through most of the game, the Yankees played with two no 42's and later, when Rivera came in...
...there were three. Rivera wears 42 all the time anyway.
You see, today was Jackie Robinson Day in the Major Leagues...Jackie Robinson made his major league debut with the Dodgers on April 15, 1947. Breaking the color barrier. He played major league ball for 10 years. He wore 42. I believe that the major leagues have retired the number. the only players that can normally wear it are those that had it before it was retired...Like Rivera.
I really like this digital SLR...takes pretty good pics! I wasn't really that close. I was up in the plaza level...nice enough seats...they would have been nicer if they weren't in the shade...not today anyway!
This guy Marshall that pitches for Oakland...about throws the ball from the ground! nasty hurler!
