On Wednesday Bob (Brad's dad) had a great idea - we went to a day game for the Indianapolis Indians, Indy's AAA minor league team. I'd heard that Victory Field is supposedly the nicest minor league venue in the country and knew that it was built about 10 years ago. I was so impressed! It's just as nice as a major league stadium, though smaller, and is situated with the city just behind it. It was a gorgeous day, the nachos were excellent (pretty much my one and only requirement at a baseball game) and though the Indians lost, it was an exciting game towards the end. And quite the bargain, too! Our seats were right behind home plate and a total steal. I may just become an Indians fan.
Walking up to Victory Field in downtown Indy. A beautiful spring day - 85 degrees!

The view from our seats. Probably the nicest baseball seats we'll ever have.
A glimpse of the new Lucas Oil Stadium (a.k.a. "The Luke") where the Colts will play starting this coming season. They closed the roof for the first time the other day. It's a beautiful stadium - very different. I'm crossing my fingers we get to go to a game somehow!
