Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back.

Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For its one, two, three strikes you're out
at the old ball game.

The home team won the night of Alex's first trip to a professional baseball game. The Los Angeles Dodgers shut out the San Diego Padres 9-0. Taking on fellow fans in shouting "Let's Go Dodgers" at the top of his lungs, Alex also beat the competition for the loudest wails. Dodger Stadium knew their newest fan was in the house. With a dozen friends and family to cheer him on, Alex enjoyed all the treats and trips to the concession and souvenir stands.
