The Salem Red Sox Booster Club had a bus trip this past weekend to see the Salem club play in Wilmington, Delaware — and then took in the Boston Red Sox-Baltimore Orioles game in Camden Yard on the way back.
Barbara Krzysko went along and shares this photo gallery – and this report:
Bill Hibbert of Salem Red Sox Booster Club planned and arranged a bus trip to Wilmington, De to watch the Salem Red Sox play the Wilmington Blue Rocks and also to Baltimore to see the Boston Red Sox play the Orioles. We stayed overnight in New Castle, De returning Sunday after the game in Baltimore . Bill’s wife, Meg Hibbert of the Salem Times Register, came along with Kathy Schlicht, Fran Dennemeyer, Derreck & Aiden(son) Rossi, Steve & Barbara Krzysko, all of Salem. We had 52 fans plus the bus driver. Bill has planned several trips before and said this was the best turn out he’s had. The Salem Sox lost their game Saturday, the last Salem Red Sox game for catcher, Luis Exposito, who was promoted to the Boston Red Sox Double-A team in Portland, Maine. I met up with the Gordons(Eric, Alice, Haellie, Adam & Eric Thomas) of Salem who drove up Sunday to see the game. Aiden Rossi, 5 yrs old, was seeing his first MLB game. Derreck said they have only missed a few of the Salem Red Sox games. We had great fun on the way up with drawings for gifts from the Salem Souvenir shop. Bill also provided snacks for those who had the “munchies”. The Orioles Park at Camden Yards was very nice. We sat on the third tier, but still had a great view of the field and had shade from the sun and a brief shower. The Boston Red Sox played a great game, with an unusually high final score of 18 to the Orioles 10. I think everyone enjoyed the experience.
