My First Ballgame

Wednesday, June 26, 1991
Sarasota White Sox @ West Palm Beach Expos
Municipal Stadium - West Palm Beach, FL

Pitching: Rodney Bolton vs. Doug Bochtler

Results: Expos defeat White Sox, 6 - 5

Notes: My dad brought me to my first ballgame a few days before my 11th birthday.  It was 25 years ago today, and it was a Florida State League game (class A) between the West Palm Beach Expos and the Sarasota White Sox.

Pete Rose Jr. played 3B for Sarasota at this game, and his father was in the crowd to watch the game.  He was a great dude; he took a photo with me and gave me an autographed card.  Regrettably, the photo was out of focus, but I'll always remember meeting him at my first ballgame.
