Game 1, Tigers at Orioles
October 2, 2014
It was only game one of the American League Division Series (ALDS) against the vaunted Detroit Tiger pitching staff led by three successive Cy Young Award winners--and O what a game it was!

The game was close--mostly within a run until the middle of the pivotal 8th inning when the Orioles sent 12 men to the plate and scored 8 runs to break the game wide open and cruise home to a lop-sided 12-3 victory.

The Orioles were definitely aided by the 10th man--the fans! Camden Yards was rocking all night. Even though I was not there in person, I was getting live reports from the stands on how much the stadium was rocking as the crowd did its job supporting the players on the field. 

I will be there today, doing my part to support the Orioles. 

Game 2 starts at high noon in Camden Yards, today. I need to remember that last night was only game one of a five game series and than anything can happen--but, I can dream! Today's game starts 0-0 with two talented and proud clubs on the field.

It is October baseball and anything can happen. Live the dream.

Wear Orange and believe!
