Play Ball

Bethlehem Steel - located in Pennsylvania, 
at one time was America's largest producer of steel
and largest ship builder. 
Steel - An alloy of iron. 
Pig Iron - An intermediate form of iron. 

Iron Pigs - A minor league baseball team 
based near Bethlehem, PA 
named after the former steel industry. 

Coca-Cola Park, Allentown, PA
 Home of the Iron Pigs

What's more American than apple pie? 
How about baseball? 

Iron Pigs Embrace Their Bacon

Minor league baseball 
is affordable family fun. 
So usually once or twice a year 
we head to a game. 

FeRROUS, #26, The Mascot Pig

I'm really not a fan of baseball. 
But it's a family thing. 
So I go. 

Where's the Peanuts and Cracker Jack? 

I am really not a fan of the food either. 
But affordable junk food is much easier to swallow
than expensive major league junk food. 

Two Beers and Two Dogs

I get through it all by taking pictures. 
Lots of pictures. 

"He threw me the ball.  Should I throw it back?

I'd rather be watching soccer. 
Any soccer. 

Between Innings 

But what else would you expect from a former soccer mom?

I love these shots. They really take you in and make you feel like we were there with you.

Football is the thing here at the moment, rugby league. I tend to find other things to do while it is on t.v. I wouldn't mind going to a live game one day, for a big team, but just to see what it is like. I think I'd be like you ... photos, photos, photos.
