The Portland Sea Dogs hosted this year’s AA Eastern League Conference All-Star Game and Home Run Derby. We managed to get tickets, so we lathered up the girls in sunscreen and had a great afternoon/evening.
The West won the home run derby. Blake Swihart of the Red Sox used to play for the Sea Dogs and was there to throw out the first pitch. He then walked up and down every aisle shaking hands and taking photos.
At the end of 9 innings, the game was tied. Rather than going to extra innings, we had a second home run derby! This time, the East pulled out the win! The game was followed by fireworks which both girls loved!
