Too Hot for Baseball?

I guess it's never too hot for baseball in the summer when the Texas Rangers are playing here in Arlington, but this night in July it was plenty hot.

**Traveling in Yellowstone country for a couple of weeks! I will be checking in on my phone when there is a signal. Catch up with you in September.

Impressive ! There is a lot of people for this match rules of which French have difficulty in understanding

@Marie LC: I don't always understand it either, but the hot dogs and junk food are really good, and my husband likes the game. ;-)

Why would anyone pack the stands in that heat, stay home with the air full,blast and listen on the radio or watch on the tube. But as for me I'd rather be traveling the national Parks.

@J.R.: The hot dogs and junk food are good, but I agree - take me out to the...national park.

Not my idea of fun, especially in the heat, but I know some are die-hard fans!

@Judy aka L@dybug: I'm not crazy about it either, but like the junk food and people watching. ;-)

Nice shot of the national pastime. Bet the Bud was flowing that evening.

@Williams: I think it always is out at the stadium. For me the Diet Coke was flowing. ;-)

Hmm, the grandstands do look a little damp, like full of perspiring fans. Minimum movement bet ya. But look at the mix of primary colors. Squint, and it blends into purple. Neat photo.
