It was Princess Night at the ballpark

There are few better expressions of Americana than minor league baseball. It combines the best qualities that our national past time can offer - cheap beer and hotdogs, cheap tickets, warm weather, the lazy innings of the idle sport that never seems to begin or end, and the wonderful scenes of families whiling away their few hours next to a field of dreams.

The Lowell Spinners are just such a minor league team, and their stadium LeLacheur Park is just such a place. Last night the stands were filled with an assortment of types, perhaps the most unexpected of which were little girls. They weren't there for the baseball I don't expect, but were there to celebrate Princess Night. Never a dull night when it's a night at the ballpark.
