About ten years ago the family decided to attend a local minor league baseball game. This was our first experience attending a minor league game. We all were astonished when we saw young adults shooting candy, tee shirts, hats, coupons for local restaurants, to the crowd attending the game.
The announcer introduced the team mascot, Thunder, to the crowd, he is a light green colored dog wearing a team jersey and baseball hat with over-sized baseball shoes, he danced on top of the dugout. Our five-year-old grand-daughter, Isabella, was mesmerized by his performance, she and the crowd were laughing at his dance moves. This started an adventure of a life time for Isabella.
