This holiday weekend, I had the great pleasure to see minor league baseball, as the Rochester Red Wings went up against the Buffalo Bisons at Frontier Field in downtown Rochester, NY.
Although Rochester is my home town, this was my first visit to the relatively new home field of the Red Wings. The entire evening was wrought with nostalgia as I continually compared the Red Wings to my current team, the Red Sox. While Frontier Field is no match for the Green Monster in Boston, this event was no less enjoyable than a night at Fenway Park.
A crown of about 10,000 people sat in sweatshirts on the cool July 4th evening. Long-time organ and keyboard expert, Fred Costello, pounded out the old favorites as we cheered on the Red Wrings. Cotton candy, peanuts and beer circulated throughout the crowd, and the evening ended with an admirable fireworks show on the field.
The Red Wings lost to the Bisons, but put up a good fight to the end. The fans were fun and friendly, and I wished the game had gone into overtime so that we could have stayed longer. Thanks, Rochester, for a great 4th of July!
