Living in Fulton, is quite an advantage to someone like me-an international student!
Kansas City and St. Louis are each within 2 hours from Fulton. This is brilliant because Fulton is rural. Being close to cities makes me feel more at home! And having two MLB teams (the St. Louis Cardinals and the Kansas City Royals) in our state is a plus!
So our Communication and Sport Class professor, Dr. Cavaiani, took us to St. Louis to study the history of the ballparks there. HOW COOL! Not many schools can take their students on field trips. We are very lucky here at The Woods.
Overall the trip was a success. Everybody enjoyed themselves. We got to take plenty of pictures, and I LOVE a good ol’ selfie!
I do not know very much about baseball, so this field trip gave me a little more insight and educated me a lot about it.
Before we left we ate delicious food at the Ballpark Village. It was lovely being all together. By now, you know I love my food and there was no way I was leaving without eating.
Thanks for reading!
It's October and that means playoff baseball is here! There is nothing better than getting together with my friends and teammates to watch the greatest players in the world play the greatest game on planet Earth. The playoffs mean throwing pizzas in the oven, getting up to speed on the latest game day predictions, and then battening down the hatches for 9 innings of Cardinal baseball. Last night the St. Cardinals beat the LA Dodgers 3 to 2 after a home run by Matt Adams off of Clayton Kershaw in the 7th inning. Our apartment went bananas when the Cardinals took the lead! Year in and year out you can find fans of all types cheering their team to victory here at William Woods! As for right now, it's time for playoff baseball. I wish it was always October. We are Cardinal Nation!
