Take me out to the ball game...

First off, I must apologize for being absent on the comments side of the blog these last few days. I have read all of them and thanks for all the kind words!

Sunday morning I drove about 18 hours before a snow storm and whiteout conditions in Indiana made me stop about 1 hour shy of my destination. Yesterday I left Michigan at 8am and after driving 19 straight hours I was home. I got about 3 hours sleep after I got home. And then I sketched this out for today's post. Why the baseball cutie? Tonight we are going to the season opening game for the Clearwater Threshers! They are the minor league affiliate of the Phillies. Imagine the turmoil down here during the World Series last year. The Phillies spring train here in Clearwater so there are a lot of fans for both the Rays and the Phillies locally.

We love going to Thresher games. Fun, fun, fun! We have gone to a couple of Rays games, and while we enjoy that, we do like the intimate feel of Brighthouse Field. Smaller, outdoor, and not a bad seat in the place. You can even bring a blanket and lay out on the grass that over looks the outfield. Frenchy's (one of our favorite restaurants) even has a tiki bar out there! Maybe I will post some photos during the game through Twitter.

Our pitcher was done in pencil in my sketchbook with colors added in Photoshop.
