My baseball team is currently struggling BIG TIME. They have been beset with many injuries this year, their offense is nonexistent, and their rock solid pitching has had some rocky patches this year. It's a wonder that they were not as far behind as they are right now. But being the defending champions, their fans are expecting much more. A repeat is the only thing that would satisfy. It doesn't look like that will happen from where I am sitting.
So this is quite an inopportune time to be posting this, but I have been very busy lately that I have no time to collect all the other images I have for other posts.
It was Father's Day this year when hometown rivals San Francisco Giants crossed the bridge to play the Oakland Athletics in Oakland.
Our tickets were way up high, I think they called those seats Mount Davis or something. But the good thing about those seats, they were practically over the home base so the shooting was good.
Here are some of the images I took of that Father's Day game.
The singing of the national anthem.
The lineups were exchanged.
The A's starting pitcher approaching the mound.
The Giant's hitter tries to bunt for a base.
But the pitch was a little too close.

The centerfielder watches as a balloon passes him by.
The Athletics lorded it over the Giants.
