Steppin out ON the field...

Um, so yesterday? Was slightly amazing.

A few months ago, my friend Amy entered a raffle at our college during an event that they were holding and won... get this: 4 tickets to the Phillies game yesterday which included seats in the Hall of Fame Club, dinner in the Diamond Club, a tour of the stadium, and being on the field {!!!} during the Phillies batting practice.

We about had a heart attack.

Here are a few pictures...

Amy, Troy, Bob and I on the field.
I made sure to take a pic of us standing on the field. Bob wanted to steal some dirt. He didn't. But he wanted too.
Ya know, just a little batting practice.
That's us. And that's Ryan Howard.
J Roll. Love him.
Utley, Howard, Victo...
The Phillies head coach {Charlie Manuel} and GM {Ruben Amaro}
Utley & Victorino
Ryan Howard... just playing a little golf.
The Phillies were playing the St. Louis Cardinals.... and that right there? Is Mark McGwire. Yep.
We got to see some pretty amazing things on the tour, including standing right next to Charlie Manuel and walking right by Vance Worley in the press room... ya know, just a normal day.

I wanted to get on the stage. I thought they might tackle me though.
Off to the broadcast booth.
Look familiar, Phillies fans?
We then headed next door to the press box. What a view from there, I'll tell ya...
After the tour, we headed to dinner in the Diamond Club and then took our seats in the Hall of Fame Club just as the first pitch was thrown. We had quite the view...
One of my new favorite players... Hunter Pence!
Yeah, so not only was this day amazing enough, but the Phillies had a chance to clinch the NL East if they won the game.

They did.
What an amazing, amazing day! And I just want to send a shout out to my good friend Amy for inviting us to go with them. We had SUCH a great time with you guys! Thank you!!
How's that for Steppin Out? =)

Looks like you had so much fun!!!

I just recently found out that Hunter Pence plays for the Phillies now. I used to live in Houston to if I had to pick an NL team, it would be the Astros just for that connection. My husband and I took a road trip a few years back to Pittsburgh and Cleveland to see the Astros play the Pirates and the Red Sox play in Cleveland (we are Red Sox fans). At the time, Pence was still with the Astros, and there was this woman sitting behind us cheering for him, "COME ON HUNNER!!!" That's how she was saying his name. It has been a running joke with my husband and I ever since. :)

Glad you had such a blast at the game, that is really an incredible opportunity!! And to be there when they clinched the NL East!! Awesome, awesome.
