Jim Thome’s 1st at bat (August 26, 2011) – Cleveland Indians vs. KC Royals

March 23, 2012

I was present at the game which saw Jim Thome’s return to the Indians after a nearly decade-long absence. I was in the upper deck so I didn’t get a very good view of home plate, and sorry the picture is a bit jiggly at the beginning. Anyway, this was an electrifying moment – and I had no idea all this would happen. I swapped my rainout tickets from May 14th for this game weeks ago!!!! 🙂
