That reminds me of the good ole days when Schottzie would leave a little present for the grounds crew every night over in foul territory by 1st base. That little scene put Marge into hysterical laughter almost every night.

Finally a game I can take my "kids" to. But when I get online to buy my tickets yesterday, it was SOLD OUT! Way to go Red's! You should have let it be known if limited seating was available for this event. There are regular seats, but no more dog seats. God knows a Red's game wouldn't sell out.

I am a season ticket holder. I assume I can bring my dog in with my season tixs, but just not sit in my regular seats! Thats my intention at least.
