San Diego adventure with my love and the Boston Red Sox!
Drew and I were all sorts of excited for this day to come for multiple reasons. The Red Sox are my home team and I haven’t seen them play live in over seven years. It was also my first time in San Diego and his first time attending a Boston Red Sox game.
We woke up early that day to start our 2 and a half hour drive down the coast to San Diego and meet up with a group of Northeastern Alumni at a bar named Basic. We had some drinks and pizza there before walking over to Petco Stadium for the game.
We walked by Drew Pomeranz warming up in the bullpen as we searched for our seats. It’s so exciting to see the players up close. The player I was most interested in seeing was “Big Papi” David Ortiz. However, the rumor going around the stadium was that “Big Papi” wasn’t playing that day. I was looking forward to seeing him play because I know he’s retiring after this season is over. So I was sort of bummed out by the rumor that he wasn’t playing.
So here we are at Petco Stadium watching the game and all of sudden it’s the 9th inning the score is 2-1 in favor of San Diego and it’s the last chance the Red Sox have to score with 2 outs on the board. Then out of nowhere Big Papi gets on deck to bat and the crowd goes wild! Everyone shouted “papi, papi, papi,” The energy in the stadium was insane! Papi steps up to the plate and it’s one, two and three strikes and he’s out. Game over… Unfortunately, he did not bring the game home. It was a little disappointing. I’ve actually never been to a winning Red Sox game it’s one of those things that I would love to experience. I guess I just have to attend more games.
I was actually surprised by the amount of Red Sox fans out here in California. My boyfriend says that us Bostonians are everywhere! On second thought, I do run into a lot of Boston people in L.A so maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised haha.
Even though the Red sox lost the game, it was great to see them play. I’m also happy that I was able to introduce Drew to Red Sox Nation.
After the game, we were super hungry so we went to Little Italy for dinner. I’m going to do a separate post for those pictures so stay tuned.
As always I hope you are having a great day!
