The view is so very different without working photographer credentials. The 15 inning Braves game against the Pirates last night was my first game as a “civilian” and we got our money’s worth. With visiting family, we saw Chipper Jones hit a home run early on and eventually saw manager Bobby Cox win his 2000th game. Although we were in the nosebleed section, it was nice to snag a beer and the basic baseball junk food from passing vendors. That kind of relaxation doesn’t happen when working a game.
The first 2 pictures are views from our seats last night. The third one is from the last Braves game I covered before leaving the newspaper. It was a day game back in April against the Florida Marlins.
