There are twelve members of the Driedger extended family in Phoenix right now and yesterday we all got together and went to watch some major league baseball spring training at the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim ball park. Here Dave and our niece Hannah check out some of the players as they warm up. Dave and his brother Paul discuss how the batters are doing. The Angels practice in a very nice facility. Our great-niece Chloe was more interested in making nature discoveries than watching the ball players in action. Dave’s brother John, his wife Linda and their daughters Grace and Hannah got a bird’s-eye view of the fielders warming up from a desert perch beside the diamond.Dave and our nephew Mike opted for a little closer look at the action on the field.
My sister-in-law Shirley scrutinizes the batters closely.
How big are those players’ muscles anyway Hannah wonders, while Grace takes photos of her favorite players. Linda only had a few pages left in David Bergen’s book The Age of Hope and figured she’d watched enough baseball and just had to see how the novel ended!John visited with Vernon Wells who used to play for Toronto. Chloe decided it was time for lunch and some people were ready to go shopping at the flea marketSo we left practice and decided to meet the next morning at the zoo. It was a beautiful day and when we got back to our place, Dave, Hannah, Grace and John had a lively euchre tournament on the patio.
