2012 Project 52; Memphis Redbirds

The company I work for put together a family night event at AutoZone Park, which is where the Memphis Redbirds play. If you're not familiar with the Redbirds, they're our minor league baseball team. Since The Hero was off on Saturday, I figured it would be the perfect time to take the kids to a game. Neither had been to a sporting event in a stadium. I knew they'd love it. Plus, it was fireworks night and everything was paid for. Who can say no to that?



8. Go to a live sporting event.

The Redbirds may have lost, but we certainly didn't. Our evening consisted of a few small rain showers, wet seats, BBQ nachos, hot dogs, sodas, cotton candy, jumping, clapping, yelling, cheering, dancing, laughing, socializing with coworkers, fireworks, and two kids who didn't complain once about wanting to go home. I'd call that a S-U-C-C-E-S-S!

Love going to the ballpark! I need to make it out to one of the Astros games this season just so I can enjoy all the crazy!

We have a minor league team by us and I have never been. I've heard the facilities are amazing, but I guess we just aren't baseball people. I'm going to have to go once just to say I have.

How fun! I'm a big baseball fan. We've gone to Mariners games with Nolan, but he always has more fun at our minor league games. It's more relaxed and family focused. What are BBQ nachos? Is the meat BBQ? I just realized that I didn’t eat any BBQ at all in Tennessee. Stupid!

I don't even watch the game when I go to baseball games. I'm there for the beer and nachos, and all the people watching. Sounds like you guys had a blast!
