First Mohawks Game of 2015
Last night was beautiful cool, dry and sunny weather (following 2-3 days of rain which was sorely needed), ushering in the first 2015 home game of the Amsterdam Mohawks Baseball Team.
I got to the field very early because I was already in town and didn't want to go home and then right back out again. So I dragged along my knitting bag and my camera to occupy myself until my friend arrived and the game began.
Unbeknownst to me, the Amsterdam Middle School (now known as the Lynch Literacy Academy~~since I don't know when, but what's up with that name?) band was going to play for the opening ceremony. The granddaughter is in that band so I was excited to see her and hear the band again. (she's the one whose music is touching the other girl's leg)
Then the game began. I always challenge myself to capture the ball right at the bat or near the catcher's glove. I think I nailed it in this image. Woot, woot.
We left at the end of the 7th inning. The Mohawks were way ahead, so I'm guessing they won.
