Ben's Camp Goes To The Nats Game

Today Ben's camp went to the Nationals - Mets game. I took the train to the ball park while Ben's group took their bus in. I was able to get a cheap ticket outside and I hung out in the lower box seat area and shot some photos before I joined Ben's group. Still need to learn how to get clearer shots of the baseball but overall I was pleased with the effort despite the high temperatures which started to affect me and I was glad to get up to Ben's seats in the upper deck. It was hot there too and we sought out shade. Then we got a nice breeze and hung out until the 8th inning before calling it a day.

The Mets won 9-5 but overall the Nats took two out of the three games in the series. Ben and his group had fun despite the temperature and score of the game. Afterwards I rewarded Ben with a new Nats cap from the team store.

For the record, Wright was 7 for 13, 3 homers and 6 RBI for the series.
