On Saturday, it was photo night, so fans were allowed onto the field and the players walked around the field so that the fans could take their photo. Josh and I didn't go onto the field because it was crazy crowded. We decided to stand behind the visitors dugout which worked out great. We were really close to the players and I got some good shots.
They were announcing that players would not be signing autographs and you were not allowed to take pictures with the players. Mr. Pujols had different ideas. He was pulling kids out left and right to have their picture taken. He was holding babies and high-fiving kids, it was really neat to watch. He is such a nice man. Mr. Pujols and his wife have a child with Down Syndrome, they have a foundation (Pujols Family Foundation) where they help family affected by Downs. He and his wife have done great things for special needs families. I think that he is an amazing person and a fantastic role model for kids.
(no zoom on the camera, we were this close to him)
On Saturday night we had bleacher seats. On Sunday we had seats behind first base, they were awesome seats!

Mr. Pujols warming up. Hello!
There was a fan at the game who was celebrating his birthday. He was sitting a few rows in front of us. He was interviewed by someone and put up on the big screen. He was celebrating his 104th birthday!!! After the next inning, Albert gave him a signed bat! Josh was super jealous, as were many other fans!!
And then there was this guy, a vendor. His catch phrase was "hot body, cold beer!!" LOL gotta love it!!
Josh and I had the best time together at the games. It was nice to enjoy one another's company.
