An Evening with the Redbirds (and Cotton Candy)

Take me out to the ball game: (from left) Madeline, Oz, Evan, Kara.

Looking pretty, Ev and Maddie.

This is my son’s family last night, enjoying the AAA Memphis Redbirds baseball team in the big, comfy stadium. Oz and Evan, of course, set the record of making faces (and trying to stuff cotton candy into one of them.

As a side note, the professional baseball team in Salem was once known as the Redbirds, a St. Louis Cardinals farm club at the time. I covered that team as a sports writer for the local daily.

They do have a good time.

Rule No. 1, Oz: Don’t eat anything bigger than your head.
