Baseball, the way it was meant to be

LaGrave infield; Fort Worth skylineI went to a Fort Worth Cats game last night at LaGrave Field with Robert & Sam (it was Sam's first baseball game). It was a baseball game stripped of the annoyances of a major league game: traffic-parking-crowds, high ticket prices, and nose-bleed seats that make the players look like specks on the postage stamp field. It was great baseball. We sat in the first row behind the home team dugout for $5 a seat (normally $10), there were 4,000 fans in attendance and the Cats beat the San Angelo Colts 12-2. Most of these Central League players may not be going to the majors, but they're still pretty damn good. We got to see it all; homers, stolen bases, double plays. And the Cats have their own stars, too, like Terrence Green, known to the fans as T-Dog, who gets cheered at the plate with 'T-Dog' chants and dog barks. There's a pretty amazing history to the team, too. After WWII and until they moved to LA, the Brooklyn Dodgers' farm team was the Fort Worth Cats. Some historic players have swung a bat at LaGrave field, including Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams and Stan Musial. Overall it was a blast & I'll be going back for more Cats baseball. [photos]
