After our tour, we went to grab something for lunch. We didn't have anymore plans for the day, so after lunch we headed back to the hotel. Our rooms were ready by the time we got back. We actually got adjoining rooms and Ashton loved it. He loved that he could go from room to room without going outside in the hall. Mom and Dad were going to go to the Casino for a little bit, so Kevin decided to take Ashton to the Saturday night game. We got tickets in the outfield behind center field. Around the 2nd inning, Ashton got to see his favorite player, Mark Trumbo, hit a homerun. The excitement in his eyes was something I will never forget. Two innings later, it started to rain, and it rained for about 10 minutes, but it was enough that they had to put the tarp on the field. So we went over to the bullpen area. There is a relief pitcher on the Indians team that is from VA so we wanted to say hi. Ashton kept calling for him and he eventually came out to say hi. Once the rain stopped, we went around and found a new seat since some people left. Ashton ended up seeing a Win for the Orioles.

Sunday morning, we walked over to Dunkin Donuts and got some breakfast before the game. It was a hot one that day, but luckily we were in the shade! Around the 8th inning, I noticed behind the Orioles dugout, there have been empty seats for a while. So we decided to move down to those seats. First row, first seats, right behind the dugout. The game was tied going into the bottom of the 9th. The Orioles put in Reimold as a pinch hitter. Strike one, ball one, ball two, then Home Run. Orioles with the walk off win. Ashton got to see another win and what a way to see a win! He was so excited!!! As we were walking away to leave, someone on the field called for Ashton. Ashton walked down to where the dugout was and the guy threw him a baseball that was used during the game. So Ashton's first baseball games were definitely memorable. He got to see his favorite player hit a homerun, a rain delay, a walk off win and got a baseball!
