Hello Mr. Santo

With my spending the better part of three days at Mayo, we have not been able to do and see very much  in Phoenix, but we have enjoyed being here nonetheless.

We decided to go see the Chicago Cubs play a baseball game at Hohokam Park in Mesa on Saturday.  Sandy found seats on-line and from the price you would have thought we were in Terrace Seats at Wrigley Field.  But, what the heck, it is only money and major league baseball needs the money.  Right?

On our way to the entrance we happened to see Ron Santo signing autographs.  For you non-Chicagoans, Ron is a former Cubs third baseman and now does color commentray on WGN radio for Cubs games.  I stopped to say hello and thank him for doing such a good job.  What a nice guy he is.
The park is not overwhelming in size and the crowd was a lot better mannered than at Wrigley Field.  We saw a victory for the Cubs as they beat the Kansas City Royals 4 - 0.

Tomorrow we had to Dead Horse Ranch State Park near Cottonwood, AZ.  I borrowed this photo from their website.

Stay tuned.
