Take me out to the ball game

John and I attended our first Albuquerque Isotopes baseball game last night. In Santa Fe it was raining hard when we left, but down in Albuquerque the skies were blue and there was no bad weather; in fact it was a perfect night for a baseball game - 72º.

The Isotopes are the Triple AAA Farm club of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Isotopes Park is a really great little ballpark, and appears to be a very class organization that the people of ABQ can be proud of. Parking is free, the food is good although a bit expensive, and the stadium is comfortable and clean. Very family friendly, lots of fun for watching both the game and all the activity going on. Of course the fact that we had seats two rows behind the visitors dugout was just about perfect.

We attended the game with friends, and had a wonderful time, even though the Topes lost 4-1. Looks like we will be going back frequently in the coming seasons.

Looks like fun! That's something I hope to do one of these years.

You do know how the Isotopes got the name, don't you?
