This is one instance where the game for me is secondary. This game between the Mud Hens (my first Mud Hens game!) and the Red Wings is also the first Glassmen Alumni Reunion. Many of my fellow Glassmen family members will be at the game as we get together and reminisce about our “experience of a lifetime”, as well as see good friends who we miss since marching together.
I suppose this game has a little extra meaning for me as the two home towns of the baseball teams, Toledo and Rochester, are also the two homes of the drum corps I marched with, the Glassmen and the Empire Statesmen. I hope that my fellow Glassmen alumni who also marched Empire are at this game, too!
If you’d like to join me at the game, let me know in the comments section below. Minor league games are fun to attend and are very affordable compared to major league teams like the Indians. I’ll also be posting some of my photos on social media so be sure to friends and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Foursquare, and Flickr.
