Take me out to the ball game

As the last post-motss-con event, 12 of us went to AT&T Park to see the Giants Cubs game. You get a great view of the bay past the outfield. A group of kids sang the national anthem and a bunch more were in the outfield before the game along with the seal (I thought at first it might be a Panda) mascot. Our seats were way up in the nosebleed section behind 3rd base; it's fun seeing high pop flies from above. I was wearing my 1914 Cubs hat that I got at Cooperstown a few years ago.

The game was fast and close with the Giants ahead 1-0 until the top of the 9th when the Cubs scored 5 runs and won the game.

The entire back of the field

This boat was seen rowing in and out several times. We could see no kayaks looking for home run balls, and perhaps there were none.
