On Saturday, April 17, ten members and guests enjoyed a hearty meal at the Salt Lick restaurant followed by the Round Rock Express vs. New Orleans Zephyrs game at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock, Texas.
After dinner we made our way across the parking lot and into the stadium. Shortly after finding our seats, the Texas skies opened up and the game was delayed nearly 90 minutes by rain.
Eventually the rain ceased, the tarp was removed, the field prepared and a baseball game was played on what turned out to be a fairly pleasant evening.
Several members suffered from divided attention while following not only the action on the field, but also following (via smart phone) the action in St. Louis where the Mets defeated the Cardinals 2-1 in 20 innings and in Atlanta where the Rockies’ Ubaldo Jiminez threw the first no-hitter in franchise history at the Braves.
Although the visiting Zephyrs left the field with a 5-4 win, a good time was had by all.
The date for the May meeting is TBD.
