What??? they charge to see the game from the roofs?

May as well to go to the bar or see it on TV.

Do they hope they catch the ball there?

No, Tomas... not too many balls would make it that far! I think they go for the party atmosphere & the booze. It's better to not have these people actually in the stadium anyway! Thanks very much for the Like!

Best wishes, Marlene

Sweet Swingin' Billy, one of my childhood heros. I saw him play his final two years out here in Oakland. He was used as a designated hitter, otherwise, his career would have probably ended w/ the Cubs. Very nice shot. YSL Best regards Marlene, Michael

I'm so glad I chose this one to post, Michael... it was almost Ron Santo instead! Thank you so much for the YSL. I really appreciate it!

Best wishes, Marlene
