FMJ - Day 465 "Our First Dodger's Game!"

July 6: 10th inning loss to the Florida Marlins. Score 6-5. This evening, Maya and Ajay went to their first ever in their lives baseball game at Dodger Stadium. The tickets were $40 3rd row field seats along right field. Ajay and I brought our gloves... He proudly pointed his Dodgers' foam #1 Fan Finger and yelled, "GO DODGERS!" I don't think they had a quiet moment for the entire 10 inning game between the two of them except when the cotton candy was devoured... Maya had her first Dodger Dog and bought a Dodgers pennant. Ajay got his first Valenzuela Dodger T-Shirt. I almost caught a foul ball. As it was descending, the ball looked like it was in my glove but sailed left about 3 rows up... drats. A good time was had by all.

After the game, we shopped at the Dodgers' souvenir shop.... AJAY MADE THE FIND OF THE DAY! He found a Ten Dollar Bill and a One Dollar Bill folded together on the floor of the souvenir shop. What a way to mark his first MLB Baseball game attendance.

BTW... Our tickets were given to us by my wife's company. So, a gracious thank you goes out to her boss from us.

Earlier in the day, we found 8 pennies at Jack in the Box on Yosemite Ave. I found 2 more pennies at the Plaza Del Simi shopping center on Tapo Canyon Rd.
