My nephew is a SSH rep for the Fresno Grizzlies (the SFG AAA team). For a while, I'd been meaning to take a roadtrip up to Fresno to visit him and catch a game.
I would have caught the Bees, but they were only in Fresno over Father's Day weekend, so no go there. Instead, a buddy and I went up this weekend to catch the Grizzlies play the Reno Aces (D-Back's AAA team).
Before the game, there was plenty to see and do around the area such as visiting all the local fruit stands...
Well, we eventually got to the stadium:
And met my nephew:
Fun game. Nobody major was rehabbing for the Giants, but there were some interesting names there for the Aces...
Juan Rivera... Yes, that's the. Frosty Tipped Bat Sniffing Juancho.
And Tyler Skaggs.
The Grizzlies played about as well as the Angels have of late, losing 9-1, after loading the bases in the bottom of the 9th, with two out, followed by a weak groundout to short. Sound familiar?
In any case, it's been a fun trip, and I hope you enjoy the pix...
