Eight chaper members gathered in Cedar Park to watch Game 3 of the World Series and witnessed Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals hit three home runs in three consecutive at-bats.
The Cardinals beat the Texas Rangers, 16-7, in a slugfest. Pujols led the charge; his three home runs in a World Series game matched Reggie Jackson and Babe Ruth, who accomplished the feat twice.
During the game, the group discussed the broadcast team of Joe Buck and Tim McCarver. Raeanne Martinez posted on Twitter something Jim Baker said here’s something you never hear in discussing Buck: "No, no, here’s why Joe Buck is good." That tweet was re-tweeted by eight others on Twitter! Our conversation was in Jim’s living room, but thanks to the magic of social media, it was viewed and read by countless people that night.
Speaking of Jim, he was the perfect host, serving scrumptous pizza with homemade toppings and delicious cookies. Much thanks to Jim for hosting the watch party.
We spoke longingly of Monte Cely, who is well known as a Cardinals fan and unable to join us. We figured he enjoyed the game.
Next meeting will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at Iron Works. A reminder will be sent out next month.
