Baseball Road Trip '16 - Beloit Wisconsin

My favorite baseball movie of all time is Bull Durham.  Among many gems of wisdom is this line:

"Sometimes you win.  Sometimes you lose.  And sometimes it rains."

We had been looking forward to watching the Beloit Snappers play.  They have a nice vintage ball park, and are a former affiliate of our favorite big league team, The Minnesota Twins.  And the mascot, Snappy D. Turtle, is very good, in our experience second only to the immortal Mr. Shucks.

But it was not to be.  When we got to town the skies were unsettled and radar showed an enormous wall of thunderstorms marching in from the west.  As they were due to hit right when the game was supposed to start it became clear that there would be no game that night.

So our third game of the Road Trip became a rain out.  We went to the movies instead.

See ya next time Snappy.
