Brewers vs. Royals — August 23, 1986

Sally and I went with the Kleins and the Mathesons to a Cubs/Reds game at Wrigley Field in the afternoon, then drove up to Milwaukee and saw a Brewers/Royals game at County Stadium in the evening. Dale found a free parking spot about seven miles from the park. On the way into the park, some guy grabbed my hand and said, “Hi. I’m Matt Flynn. I’m running for the U.S. Senate.” I said, “Hi. I’m Roger. I live in Illinois.”

We sat in the Mezzanine Boxes, a narrow row of seats that hung from the upper deck and had a shelf in front of the seats to put food on.

At 8:54 pm, I participated in my first, and last, wave. When the wave came around, I stood up, threw my hands in the air and came very close to knocking the light fixture on my head.

The Brewers won 8-4.
