G38: Rangers lose to Indians 8-6; The Rookie filmed

Well, I was at this game, it was the night before I left for E3 in Los Angeles. I wanted to go to a baseball game before I went out of town. The Rangers lost, but I had a great time at the game. Decent weather, my wife was with me, and what made it awesome for me was the pinch hitting by Ruben Sierra in the bottom of the 6th. I was busy with my scorecard, and my wife pointed out that Sierra had come out for a curtain call – glad she did that, or I would have missed it. Was really nice to see that, and for me, it was the highlight of the day.
They were also filming stuff for the Disney flick “The Rookie“. Dennis Quaid (who I loved in Frequency & Innerspace) was at the park, and ran out in the middle of the 7th to film stuff. There were a few errors on the filming, like the Devil Rays uniform being current instead of what they were wearing in 99; same for their logo. Also, Quaid ran out from the Rangers’ bullpen, not the visitors. Oh well, it’ll still be cool to go see that in the theatres and see the Ballpark in Arlington (remember, Arlington Stadium made a cameo in my all time fav baseball movie – Bull Durham).
