Getting My Money's Worth

The Giants put on a good show last night in their final night game of the season. My co-worker who got the seats found some good ones on StubHub: Section 125, behind third base and in the next-to-last row. That did mean that while I saw the splash hit (I think the second one I've witnessed in person), I only saw the ball heading over the arcade and had to look at the monitors to see it actually hit the water. But I had a great seat for Conor Gillaspie's inside-the-park home run, which also was the first homer of his major league career. I saw him trip over third base and go sprawling, and I was astounded when he got up, kept running, and made it safely to home. Now the officially scorer might have been slightly generous in not scoring that as a triple-plus-error, for if the ball had been cleanly fielded at home they would have had a shot, and frankly, the reason Gillaspie was able to even try for four was because the Rockies were falling apart on the field and missed the relay throw, but it was still exciting, and the crowd roared its approval.

The Giants are of course out of it, but I still had a good time. I hope I get a chance to attend at least one game next year, too.
