Aw, man! If I were there I would totally go with you just to get another one of those delicious garbage plates! It would be my first baseball game and my second official garbage plate!

You've never been to a baseball game? Not even little league or high school?

I imagine the lines at the bathrooms are going to be quite long on August 10th at Frontier Field. Wouldn't really want to eat a plate sitting in the stands tho, really messy and imagine if someone had to jump up for a foul ball.

No little league, no high school, no college.

I went to one minor league game when I was ten years old. The OKC 89ers used to be a farm team for the Astros (later they became the Redhawks, and are now the OKC Dodgers, a farm team for the LA Dodgers).

I went on "free bat day" with several friends. You got a free bat if you turned in your ticket stub, but we started finding ticket stubs everywhere and traded them in. We spent the entire time asking people for their ticket stubs and trading them in for bats. I came home with the least amount of bats of any of my friends and I got five or six. They made great guitar substitutes and tree-bashing weapons.

During the game some guy asked me if I knew which team was the 89ers. I pointed at one and he said, "are you sure?" and laughed. To this day I don't know if he was laughing because I was right or because I was wrong. But there you go.

That was so close to what I experienced it could have been a documentary.
