Stitch n' Pitch

Did you make it to your local MLB Stitch n' Pitch event? Ours was this past weekend, but I didn't make it, because I was busy watching this guy play in the Championship of I don't even know what, regional? city? Anyway. I'm not a huge baseball fan, really. I figure it's kind of like gambling, boring, boring, boring, WOOO!!!, boring, boring, boring, WOOOO!! This is our nephew hitting a Triple (and an RBI) in the big game. That was a big WOOO!! for us. Watching a game when you know the players and have an interest in the outcome changes everything. i really enjoyed it. (somewhat surprisingly). Unfortunately, they came in 2nd place. Me and the GoCrochet family had a good time though watching the games. (he played 5 in two days, we caught 2.5 of them). It was most pleasant because we were in the shade in the 90+ heat.
Stitch n' Pitch, for those of you who don't know, are events hosted by TNNA (The National NeedleArts Association) held at Major League Baseball fields all over the country. They give stitchers a discount, sit them together, give them a goodie bag, and encourage them to stitch during the game! Very cool.
