Mike brought three of his friends to a baseball game. Last Sunday was his birthday, and his parents said he could bring three friends anywhere. He chose the baseball game. Mike loved baseball. He loved everything about it. He liked playing it, watching it on television, and watching it live. His friends were excited too. They brought a blanket and sat in the grass. Mike preferred sitting in the grass to sitting in seats. He could stretch his legs. He could lie down if he wanted to. He could watch the funny people in the stands. Mike and his friends left their blanket to get some food. They all got hotdogs and french fries. Mike planned on getting ice cream later. The local minor league team was pretty good, but the opposing team was supposedly better. It seemed that this would be an exciting game. The boys all sat happily on their blanket, eating hot dogs. The sun was starting to set behind the stadium. What a wonderful way to spend a day.
