Fourth game and last game picture.
So we went to the fights and a baseball game broke out. Three bench clearing brawls - it was awesome except for the Tigers beating the Yankees. Great seats 18 rows behind home plate.
Thursday to Detroit. Got up early and four hours up Hwy 75 later checked into the Aloft in the David Whitney buildings. Cool hotel and can see Comerica from our room. Great ballparks.

The Cubs mauled the Reds. The stadium had a very relaxed vibe. There was a Fun Zone where Harry played some games. The Great American Ballpark lives up to its name.
Wednesday on to Cincinatti and had a picturesque drive through the Appalachian mountains. Arrived in Cinci, checked out the Great American Ballpark and checked into the Westin.

The sky's cleared before the game. It is a beautiful ball park. We had incredible seats seven rows from the field. We accomplished our last two of three goals of 1 a hat from ball girl thrown into the crowd 2 on the jumbo torn and 3 Harry for a foul ball. Got a Primanti sandwich which is steak, coke slaw and French fries between two thick slices of bread. Another great night.
Tuesday - got up and drove to Pittsburgh. About a two hour drive. We drove around downtown and the ballpark PNC Park. We bought some Pirate hats and shirts at the Team Store. I got a picture with a statue of a childhood hero Willie Stargell. We grabbed lunch at the ballpark and the skies opened up. Checked into the Hyatt and hoping the game is not rained out.

Exciting game, Indians won 5 to 4 with a run in the bottom of the ninth.
Best hot dog ever. Toppings of Mac & cheese, bacon bits and Fruit Loops. It was a thing of beauty.

Got to Cleveland - bought some fresh NMD R1's and then chilled out in the Radisson before the game.
