Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – Spectator

This week the Wednesday Challenge from partner Susan and myself is SPECTATOR .“

No matter how good you are, you’re going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you’re going to win one-third of your games. It’s the other third that makes the difference.”― Tommy Lasorda

Team captain for the Edmonton Prospect baseball team ( left) and the Okotoks Dawgs Black captain (far right) go over the rules with officials. Their respective teams played a doubleheader game in Seaman Stadium in Okotoks Alberta despite the fact that smoke from a number of forest fires in neighboring British Columbia Canada blanketed the area. This was the first-ever Canada Baseball Day celebration.

Baseball is alive and well in Canada thank you very much!

Two weeks ago Saturday the Edmonton  Prospects ball club and the Okotoks Dawgs squared up and shared a doubleheader at Seaman Stadium in Okotoks Alberta located south of Canada.

This was the first such tournament held in Canada since the arrival of the COVID virus and fan enthusiasm was as good as it ever was. I sat behind home plate and got a front row seat to watch all the action.

It reminded me when I visited Tiger Stadium and enjoyed a cold frosty beer, foot long hot dog with all the trimmings and of course the main event taking place on the ball diamond. Those were the good old days when payer such as  Al Kaline ( nicknamed Mr. Tiger) thrilled the fans with his playing style and charisma.

Both teams shared a win in this seven inning double header competition. The weather might have been a bit smoky but this did not dampen fan enthusiasm. The Dawgs have a black and a red ball team division.

This week we encourage you to tell us of your own experiences either playing or watching professional sporting events.

How you choose to respond to this challenge is entirely up to you – Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.
