Last week, I had an opportunity to visit New York City again and it was a blast. (It always is.) Saw a couple of Broadway musicals, a couple of concerts, a Tottenham Hotspur soccer game…and the Reds happened to be in town, as well. I wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to check out the Redlegs at Yankee Stadium, so we hopped on the D train and headed up to the Bronx.
The weather was gorgeous — not too hot — and we lucked into some really great seats at Yankee Stadium (I don’t think I’ve ever had seats this good at Great American Ball Park). Unfortunately, the Reds weren’t great on this day, but it was a fun time nonetheless. There were some former Reds on the New York roster (Didi Gregorius, Todd Frazier, Aroldis Chapman) were even a few Reds fans sitting near me (one of whom is pictured below, so we suffered together.
Good seats, good new zoom lens on my camera, and I took a few pictures that I was pretty happy with. Felt like I should document the trip for posterity here at Redleg Nation.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
