Be warned. I am going to post a lot of pictures of me with my father. We went to a lot of games together, including stadium trips when I was in college.
This is one of my favorite pics of the two of us. Lots of love in the pic and knowledge that we were appreciating THEN that this was one of the highlights of our relationship.
So thank you, stranger who took this picture of us at Detroit’s Tiger Stadium in 1991. You captured a nice moment.
My dad and I went to a game at Tiger Stadium on August 18, 1991. Most games at Tiger Stadium were poorly attended during its final years. Not this one. It was jam packed with lots of fans coming over from Ontario to see the Blue Jays and Tigers square off.
It was a heck of a game.
Sparky Anderson is not happy that his starter, Bill Gullickson, was tossed after facing only 3 batters against the Blue Jays.
His protests would fall upon deaf ears.
