Today, Bay and I visited the traveling Baseball Hall of Fame exhibit which is in Round Rock, just 20 minutes from our house. The displays were way better than I was expecting. We got to see Babe Ruth’s last home run baseball, Roger Maris’ bat that hit the home run to break Babe Ruth’s single-season record, Harry Caray’s famous glasses, and much more! I was pretty blown away at the history that was able to be displayed.
In addition to those items, there were VR activities, like experiencing the 2016 World Series at the ballparks in Chicago and Cleveland, and riding along in the victory parade. It was really cool.
And a little bit more fun was that I made my own silly Hall of Fame plaque, which you can see below. 😆
I highly recommend a visit to the traveling Hall of Fame if you get the chance.

Today we made a trip up to Dodger Stadium to visit the new museum. There are lots of really cool things to see for Dodger fans. We enjoyed it a lot. We got to see a bunch of historical jerseys that were worn during no-hitters and other memorable games, plus a cool Vin Scully exhibit with the headset he wore for the final game, the game notes, line-up sheets, and scorecard. They also had a few broken game bats which were cool to pick up and see just what a real MLB player’s bat is like. I loved it!
Later in the day we had a bite to eat at Mercado La Paloma. It was great to get some delicious Mexican food and hang out with my family. I highly recommend the Chichen Itza restaurant. Yum!!
It’s already nearing the end of October, can you believe it? This month has flown past. Seems like just yesterday the month started, but now Halloween is almost here. 👻 As you can see from the photo, Koa is already prepared with his unicorn costume. Not sure what made him want this particular outfit this year, but I think it’s pretty cool and unique.
As for myself, I wasn’t planning on dressing up, but a couple of friends will be coming over for Halloween 🎃 to hang out, and they are planning on wearing costumes, so I need to figure something out. But my mind is a blank, once again. Hmmm… I need to brainstorm a bit, don’t I?
Tonight we watched game 1 of the World Series ⚾️ between the Cubs and Indians. I am rooting for Cleveland this year, mainly because a good friend of mine is a big fan. And they had a big win this evening! I’m sure the Cubs will battle back, though. It’s got the makings of a great series.
