Wow, what a day. From the worst honorary first pitch in history to Adam Dunn’s fireworks to Aaron Harang’s dominance to the emotion of Josh Hamilton’s debut…I can’t imagine having more fun at a ballgame.
I’ll have more tomorrow, and maybe a photo or two. As for tonight, I’m just going to enjoy a very satisfying day of baseball.
As an old guy said on the way out of the stadium, you can’t win ’em all if you don’t win the first one.
