When my prince got us tickets to watch a US Major League Baseball game as part of our 4th anniversary as sweethearts, I must admit my heart thumps! Yes, it was my first time to watch a baseball game, but honestly it wasn't the main reason for the excitement.
Well that is really no reason to sulk. Even without the popping the question part, watching baseball with my prince last July 26, 2011 is one of the reasons why I had a blast while in the US last summer.
Baseball is a bat - and - ball sport played between two teams of nine players each. The aim is to score runs by hitting a thrown ball with a bat and touching a series of four bases arranged at the corners of a ninety-foot diamond.
The baseball craze hit the New York metropolitan area in the mid-1850s. Since then, baseball became the "national pastime" or "national game" of Americans like basketball to Pinoys. Ergo, having an American boyfriend means sometimes I had to take a back seat when my prince fave team plays. Well, not when I was with him watching the game!
Seattle Mariners is my prince favorite baseball team. That day we were hoping to see the Mariners try to snap their 16-game losing streak. Well, I didn't have a first timer's luck. Again? haha.
