Take Me Out To The Ballgame
Hubby and I had a night out on Sunday! We were given four complimentary tickets to the Pelicans ball game by our Edwards Jones Financial Advisor.
The Pelicans Stadium is in Myrtle Beach and they are the farm team for the Chicago Cubs for up and coming baseball players. The game started at 5:00 PM so we got there around 4:00 PM. Since we had two extra tickets, we were hoping to find someone who could use them. As we waited near the ticket booth, a couple was heading from the parking lot to the booth. I asked the gentleman if they needed tickets and he asked if we were scalpers. I told him we had two extra tickets and just wanted to give them to someone who may want them. Both him and his wife look totally mystified and asked how much we wanted for them. Again, we told them no charge, no strings, just two free tickets. Reluctantly they took the tickets and thanked us. Then they looked at the seats and were so excited. We had front row seats, right behind home plate. Once again, they said they would pay us but we told them the tickets were given to us and we just wanted to pay it forward. My hubby told them there was one drawback, they had to sit next to us. We all laughed and continued to our seats.
All night he kept asking if they could buy us a drink or food. We told him, we’re fine, don’t need anything, since I had my cotton candy so just sit and enjoy the game. As we chatted before the game started, we found they were from Canada and came to Myrtle Beach to vacation over the winter.
I then asked if they would like me to talk a photo of them and that made them excited also. I took their photo and emailed it to them. We now have each other’s emails so maybe next year we can meet up with them again. When the game was over, we said our good byes, they thanked us again and hopefully Sunday evening at the ball park made their vacation a memory of how some people do good things.
