My favorite part of the park - the "Batter's Eye". If you want to get a souvenir before the game - this is the place to do it.

Fans doing the wave
So, Cliff - do you like the wave or is it just annoying?
Slider on dugout
Indian's mascot - Slider. Not really sure what he is. May be a cousin of the Phanatic... Not nearly as entertaining, though.
They won this night (only night of the series they won!) They only shot off one little thing of fireworks, though .
