University of Kentucky/Nutter Field House-Lexington, KY:  What a weekend this was, the first annual Father/Son Baseball Camp hosted by the Kentucky Wildcats baseball program.  After a small nap Saturday morning, Brian and I made the trek to Lexington.  Upon arriving on campus and heading into the Nutter Field House, we were greeted by Wilcats’ head […](image)

The Minor League Baseball community lost a staple at the ballparks this week, in entertainer Myron Noodleman.  Born Rick Hader (Noodleman, or course, was a stage name), he lost his battle with an aggressive form of cancer on Wednesday.  He started performing at ballparks in 1994, and in 2004 was christened the fifth ‘clown prince […](image)

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  The Louisville Bats had a great idea to wrap up the 2017 for their fans, hosting a movie night at the ballpark.  Sitting in the stands or laying out on a blanket on the field with a movie up on the video boards is definitely a promotions most fans were excited […](image)

Florence Freedom vs. Schaumburg Boomers (Frontier League) UC Health Stadium-Florence, KY:  I sat at my desk at work last Friday night, keeping an eye on the score on the computer, hoping the Florence Freedom would pull it off.  Already down two games to none, another loss would mean the series would be over, and the […](image)

Cincinnati Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers (National League) Great American Ballpark-Cincinnati, OH:  Oh, Labor Day.  When most people are smart enough to take a day off and relax, we decided to head up to the Queen City for some Reds baseball.  As usual, we parked in Newport and took the boat over to the ballpark.  Since […](image)

Walsh Park-LaGrange, KY:  Despite the fact that practices started in the summer, and, wait, I think technically it still is summer, but fall baseball has started at North Oldham Little League.  After a disappointed spring, I had to really convince Brian to play here in the fall.  Being this is his first experience with other kids […](image)

Louisville Bats vs. Rochester Red Wings (International League) Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  This was such a bitter-sweet game, as it was the last Bats game for us this season.  It’s hard to believe the season, and summer, has gone by so quickly, but here we are, ready to say goodbye to Louisville Slugger Field for […](image)

Louisville Bats vs. Buffalo Bisons (International League) Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  Last weekend was another first, as this was the inaugural game that I attended alone.  Brian was tied up with a friend, Trevor wasn’t feeling well, and Lily was, well, out being Lily.  Since there was no one there to entertain me other than […](image)

Great American Birthdaymlblogsburrilltalksbaseball

Cincinnati Reds vs. Washington Nationals (National League) Great American Ballpark-Cincinnati, OH:  I love it that I have a summer birthday.  One perk is that it’s a good even split from presents at Christmas.  My sister has a birthday on December 29th.  It just seemed like Christmas presents simply flowed into birthday presents a few days […](image)
