Arizona Trip - June 2007

Pete, Shalan, and Leila in the stands of the 2001 World Series (winner) stadium... they beat the Yankees in 7 games

The Red Sox were leading the American League East by more than 10 games at the time

Don't wanna pull a hammy

It was only the second MLB stadium at the time to have a retractable roof, and the first ballpark to feature natural grass in such

I think this is Manny

Um, I think that's a lost ball
