This challenge is kind of cheating, because I’ve already made plans to go to an Astros’ game this week with my book club. We read The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach (which I loved and devoured in a matter of days), so baseball had to be included somehow.
I haven’t been to a pro game in a while. I grew up going to my brother’s baseball games (where I would, without fail, be either climbing the back of the bleachers or reading a book, and I never knew which team had won). So I got over baseball pretty quickly.
Still, it’s a fun excuse to eat terribly wonderful food and chat with friends and trash talk umpires, which I just can’t pass up. I think I’ll have an awesome time.
Do you like baseball? Anybody else bring a book along to sporting events, just in case?
