A Farewell to Summer
Tonight the Indianapolis Indians hosted their last game at Victory Field in downtown Indianapolis. At the start of the game, they were still in the wildcard race, but it was a long shot. Though they did finally defeat Travis Wood and the Louisville Bats, the win by the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs sealed the deal before we finished our first post-game drink at the bar across the street from the ball park.
We may still have a month of major league baseball left to go, plus another six months of post-season play, but bidding farewell to your local AAA team on a balmy late summer night is a special kind of sadness. Till next year, oh boys of summer!
