|PNC Field in Scranton-Wilkes Barre|
We were in the Bronx in the afternoon where we saw the Yankees beat up the Cleveland Indians, 11-2! A-Rod hit a Grand Slam that broke open a 2-1 game in the 7th inning as the Yankees proceeded to cruise to an easy victory.
After the game, we drove 128 miles to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to see the Triple A Yankees play.
They wound up losing 9-1 to the Durham Bulls who are the Tampa Bay Rays farm team
at PNC Field formerly Lackawanna County Stadium
More importantly, we got to meet up with Alvin Pachter and his father, Howard. In addition, they were joined by Philip Cutler who we've met a few times in the recent past.
As for Alvin and his father, we met them a number of years ago from going to see the Red Barons who played there when they were affiliated with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Alvin and his father do road trips as well on a smaller scale.
They normally take a long car ride around the country during the summer.
They usually come to NYC a few times a year as well to pay us a visit.
They made the trip today worth our while.
It's always fun to see people that we've met on road trips so we can catch up and share our unique adventures.
