I had a chance to get some good pictures of San Francisco Giant ace Tim Lincecum at Hohokam Park against the Cubs. It was a record crowd at Mesa and 90 degrees. The Giants were losing this game by 2 going into the 9th but pulled it out. Tim got hit pretty hard, but still managed 6 K's in less than 4 innings pitched. I told Robin we would have an easy time getting tickets this year because of the low attendance records this year at Spring Training. I was wrong. Packed houses at Diablo Stadium in
Tempe, Scottsdale, Phoenix Muni and Hohokam. But we were able to buy tickets at reasonable prices and have a good time in the areas we visited. Our final bill for this vacation will be near $4,000 and we were budgeted for around $2,500 total. Could have went to Europe, Bahamas or Hawaii! I don't know where we will end up next year, but I am leaning on flying!
