After almost a month of unpacking and working on our new house, we needed a break. We decided a night out watching the Colts was just the thing.
The San Angelo Colts are members of the South Division of the North American Basebal League. Other members of the division are the Rio Grande Valley Whitewings, the Edinburg Roadrunners, the McAllen Thunder, and the Yuma Scorpions. The Colts currently lead their division. The NAL is an independent professional baseball league that was formed in the fall of 2010. Teams play a 96 game schedule, and the level of play is comparable to that of AA or AAA teams.
The Colts play at Foster Field on the campus of Angelo State University. It's a very good facility, and we enjoyed the night out. We decided to go out on "Thirsty Thursday" for the $1 beer specials. Although it was a bit warm for the first hour or so, once the sun began setting, the night began to cool somewhat and the evening was enjoyable. Activities are scheduled throughout the night to keep the audience entertained, and the quality of the play was good, although 3 errors were recorded during the game. Unfortunately, the Colts lost a 6-2 lead during the last inning and fell to McAllen, 9-6.
