Take me out to the...rain delay!

So my Dad got some tickets to go see the Albuquerque Isotopes (minor league baseball). The big deal about this game is that Manny Ramirez, pro baseball player for the LA Dodgers was playing for the Isotopes for a few games before he comes out of his suspension from the Majors due to steroid use. Just as we get to the ballpark it starts to rain and does so on and off for a while before the game starts. An announcement comes over the loud speaker saying that the Dodgers pulled Manny from the game because of the weather conditions. So after a lot of boos and jeering from the crowd, the game finally got started. We only stayed a couple innings because it started to rain more, but it was still fun to go to my first real ball game in a while. Because Manny didn't play everyone can trade in their ticket stubs for any other game this season, so hopefully we'll have a chance to go again later this summer. Here are some pics. First couple are just of the tarp covering the field.
