America’s favorite pastime, was the perfect venue for a fun-filled “couples night out” that began with an traditional pre-game picnic, complete with hot dogs, hamburgers and pulled chicken, in the Right Field Perch. The ideal Sarasota Spring weather, the wonderful company of old and new friends, the good-natured rivalry between die-hard Pirates and Oriole fans, and a personal visit from the Orioles Mascot, “The Bird”, made dining al fresco delightful and fun!

The lively, all American picnic was followed by a great game, where players from both major league teams demonstrated their athleticism and neither team lost. No Fooling! This is because the very exciting game ended in a 3-3 tie in the tenth inning.
