Don't have pictures to go with it, but was driving through Arkansas and decided to stop in and catch a Naturals game tonight so here's a review of that.
-It was faith and family night so they had some band planning in the outfield when we got there that I pretty much tuned out.
-Ate at some BBQ place. Ordered a brisket plate. Potatoe salad was ok, beans where bland, brisket was way too fatty. Had to chew it for like 10 minutes. Also had nothing to eat it with but a plastic fork. Would not recommend
-Had a beer place that the sign said it was craft and imports. Was mostly canned imports. Did have a decent local red rye on tap.
-Had tickets a couple rows behind the home dugout, great seats.
-Their mascots are a Sasquatch named Strike and a river monster named Sinker. Where very strange and I don't know that I saw them at all after the crappy videos and introductions they entered to.
-Ramon Torres and Raul Mondesi started the game with back to back homers
-The other team's defense was horrible. Only one error but 5 or 6 plays a better fielder would have made. Naturals scored 8 runs and the 2 HRs where about the only ones that weren't aided somehow by bad defense.
-Didn't really have much of an opportunity to see the Naturals defensive quality. Very few balls not hit right at someone. 3B made a couple nice plays but he was also celebrating his 27th birthday. Mondesi failed to snag a grounder he probably should have but doubt he'd have gotten the runner anyway. Almost defensive play of the game came at the end of the game with the Naturals up big. Torres was playing very deep at 2nd and he ran down a grounder over halfway to the RF fence and nearly threw the guy out at 1st. It was impressive range.
-After the game they did a chuck a ball thing with a bucket on the pitchers mound. Some kid (guessing about 10-12 yo) whose dad had an EMAW hat, after nearly hitting the bucket once, launched an impressive bullet of a throw that bounced just in front of the mound and 1 hopped into the bucket winning him a $100 gift certificate to some clothing place
