When we first got to the stadium and were walking down the concourse, I saw Slugger, the Royals' mascot and pointed him out to Ben. Ben got so excited he started jumping up and down. Slugger came over and patted him on the head and we followed him to the autograph signing, where Ben also got to meet the mascots (Sasquatch & bird) of two minor-league affiliates.
It was a perfect night for a ballgame and it was also Buck Night, so we sat at picnic tables in the outfield and had our $1 hot dogs, then walked around the Outfield Experience.

We left at the top of the 8th inning as it was way past the kids' bedtimes. Ben left saying, "We should come back again!" After we left, the Royals promptly blew their lead and lost 9-7. But it was still a lovely evening!
