matt's beloved detroit tigers were playing the st. louis cardinals. their spring training field is located in jupiter florida which is only 20 minutes from our house. matt bought the tickets two months in advance with a friend of his that also teaches at PBA. the weekend before the game his friend hurt his back and was laid up in bed. so, pending the ability to find a last minute babysitter, we were able to go on a date in the middle of the day!
