Edgar Martinez night
I was so happy to see Edgar get his due. On the ceremony itself, I thought it was kind and well-done, and Edgar’s speech was great. Thanks, Edgar.
I particularly thought it was great that so many people showed up — announced attendance was 45,817 making for two nights of packed, enthusiastic crowds. The game was pretty quick (especially considering the score and pitchers used) and it seemed like almost everyone stuck around, even though the ceremony ran a little long for a lot of people with kids (or whatever — four hours is a lot of time in a seat).
I was glad to find I was in such good company in appreciating everything Edgar’s done.
