Sweethearts at the Padres Game -- Post 376 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Carringer genealogy collection - these are from Monday, 31 August 2015:

My granddaughters, the Sweethearts of HB, Lauren (age 10) and Audrey (age 7) went to the San Diego Padres-Texas Rangers baseball game with us on Monday night.  They made a sign on poster board to hold up and hope to bet on the video board.

The Padres have a Twitter feed, and if you post a photograph on Twitter and use the hashtag #SDinHD then they may show the photo, or the tweet, on the video board.  I submitted the picture above at about 6:45 p.m. (25 minutes before the game) and it was shown several times on the video board.

Here is a poor photo of the video board (I zoomed in too much) with the photo above:

Our photo is second from the left on the top row of photos.  I don't think the one to the left, which says "Cutest Padres Fan!" was meant for them, but it should!

The girls were ecstatic about this and squealed every time they saw it as the game progressed.

After the 7th inning stretch, Audrey was dancing in the aisle with the sign, and she and Linda were briefly on the video board live.  They were excited.  I missed it.
