When we first got to the suite, the mascot for The Times, Digger, was standing out on the balcony. Dylan immediately clung to me with a death grip for a good 15 minutes, he was so scared. Dylan had just woken up from a nap and wasn't prepared to be greeted by a big brown hairy creature, I suppose! After a couple games of peek-a-boo and a few high fives with Digger Dylan finally warmed up and allowed me to put him down.
The cool thing about the RailCats is that they really make the day a family affair. The ballpark is really nice, the mascots are fun (Rascal and Rusty) and there is a lot to do for the kids. There is even a playground in the stadium and the South Shore trains roll by at least once during the game, Dylan loved seeing and hearing the trains.
They let the kids run across the field during a break in the game.

Dylan is a serious fan already. He was in the press box in this photo.
Braving the cool temps to sit out on the balcony.
Dylan ran the bases after the game, he was great! If you open the photo you can see me up in the balcony with Matthew and Aunt T cheering Dylan on.
