Revisit- Salem Red Sox, was Salem Avalanche

Date of visit- Day game, Sunday June 3, 2010

Tina, Brandon, Cooper and I went to a game way back in 2008 I think here, when the franchise was known as the Salem Avalanche.  Today, they are the High A team for the Boston Red Sox. 

This is a beautiful stadium!  In the foothills of Salem, Va.  Seats about 5000 or so. 

We got to the field about 3 for a 4:05 game-  parked for free- and got great seats first row on the visitors dugout. 

There was an announced crowd of 2507- that looked about right. 

Got a ball and pin, and this day, the players were all signing autographs on the concourse before the game, and Cooper was able to get a poster and have Jackie Bradley Jr sign it for him.  Bradley played at the Univ of SC and is having a terrific year this year, batting .370 something, and has an on base percentage of like .491 batting leadoff. 

He went one for 3 today, and had an RBI with a double. 
The outcome was never in doubt:

The Red Sox crunched em!  They had 18 hits, a lot of them for extra bases, and won going away.
