Hey everyone! Dave here. Well, another weekend in the books for all of us in Redbirds land. At least for the interns, this was our first weekend off in awhile so we made sure to make the most of it.
Friday night a bunch of us headed over to Harbor Town to run the Harbor Town 5k. I apologize for not taking any photos myself. It’s kind of tough to lug around my camera when running a little over three miles. So these photos I got are courtesy of Michelle, who blogs about living in Memphis. I suggest you check it out. Here’s the link to her blog: http://www.memphistanista.com/2008/06/harbor-town-5k.html
After the race people stopped to catch their breath around Miss Cordelia’s market
What’s a Memphis event without a live band?
Anyway, the Redbirds are currently on the road in Albuquerque and we return home on June 10th. Tyler Greene is riding a 16-game hitting streak and Jon Jay is back with us! If you remember he started the season with the ‘Birds and had a 16-game hitting streak before being called up to the St. Louis Cardinals. With St. Louis he hit .302 with a .302 on-base percentage and a .442 slugging
percentage in 45 plate appearance.
So remember, we return home June 10th for a four-game home stand against the Iowa Cubs with fireworks on Friday! See ya there!
