Cooper and I got here about 6 pm, and as we drove up, we asked about handicapped parking and was told it was free, and furthermore, it was right at the stadium. Then, as we walked up to ask about tickets, we were handed a voucher for free tickets! Score!
Then, as we walked down to the front of the stadium, Cooper noticed a ball flying out into the highway next to the box office, turns out they were having batting practice, and were hitting balls out in left field foul. He got three balls before we ever got inside!
There were several giveaways that night, Coop got a mini-soccer ball, pencils, and he got several other small things. The stadium is not very ball friendly, but Coop managed two more, heading out to the right field area, and he got a player to give him
one. Coop got kind of tired by 9 or so, so we headed out before the game was over.
This is a beautiful setting for baseball, lots of fans- Coop got his face painted with a Gamecock and a RiverDog.

As of now, the only team we have left to do in South Carolina is Myrtle Beach- they just this winter moved their affiliation from Atlanta to Texas, I believe.
