Keeping Score

Keeping Score

On This Date: Photo taken 8/5/2005

Some people can’t watch a ballgame without a scorecard.

My brother and I were at Toronto’s Skydome (yeah, I know: Rogers Centre) with a few hundred other members of the Society for American Baseball Research. We were there for SABR’s convention, where we attended workshops and meetings, socialized, watched this ballgame, and had an all-around good time.

Not sure whose scorecard this was, but I kept score, too. I generally do. I’m quite capable of shooting hundreds of photographs and scoring a ballgame…..

So many choices for today’s photo!

A Milwaukee Harbor tour. The SABR convention mentioned above, and a walking tour of downtown Toronto. Mine and power plant tours in Minnesota, with locomotives. Flowers (lots of flowers, in bright colors). Michillimackinac, and Mackinac Point lighthouse, and The Bridge. Finches at feeders. A couple ballgames. Foggy landscapes. And two years’ bluegrass festivals at Milan.

A wealth of photographs. And I stick you with a stupid scorecard.

Number of pix taken on various August 5ths: 1715
Year of oldest photo: 1992
