Minnesota Twins Professional Baseball Game

Yesterday, the Kalesburg Senior Citizens Club made a venture out to see the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball play against the Rangers from Texas. In attendance were Mrs. Myrtle Standich, Mrs. Lisa Ferden, Mr. Walter Collier, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Kennedy, Mr. and Mrs. Luther Tate, Mr. Frank Wyland, and Ms. Allison Tuttle, among others. It was decided in the morning that the weather was optimal for a grand ballgame. Most in the party even wore Minnesota Twins baseball caps in support of the home team, the Minnesota Twins. Mr. Frank Wyland had a Minnesota Twins pennant.*

Mrs. Lisa Ferden had previously won free tickets to a Minnesota Twins professional baseball game, but had foregone this option as the Kalesburg Senior Citizens Club had purchased the tickets for all in the party. The professional game was splendid. A particular favorite was the Middle Outfielder, Torii Hunter, who was admired as much for his professional playing as for the peculiar spelling of his first name.

There was many a reason to cheer, though it was hard to stand and cheer. It would not hurt for the rows to have more room for such a thing. Regardless, the Minnesota Twins won with a score of four points to the Texas Rangers' two points.

The only other con in this atmosphere of pros was that the food was a little on the expensive side. Mrs. Howard Kennedy remarked that she could have had eight hot dogs for the price she paid for one. Mr. Howard Kennedy added that all in attendance should save their receipts. If the entire stadium did so, it may be enough for a court case to lower these extravagant prices. Said Mrs. Myrtle Standich pointedly, "Walking vendors do not have portable receipt machines." This argument was soon tabled and a compromise was met that perhaps the next game, the Kalesburg Senior Citizens Club could cover the cost of hot dogs as well.

*Mr. Frank Wyland spontaneously purchased another pennant before leaving the stadium.
