One trip to which each division looks forward every year is a trip to see one of the local professional baseball teams. This year, everyone enjoyed the Binghamton Mets. The Binghamton Mets are the Minor League affiliate of a slightly better known team of Mets…The New York Mets. Most campers enjoy the time at the Mets game socializing with their friends and (frequently) visiting the concession stand. But, hey, we have baseball fans here at Camp Starlight. So we set out to find out, out of sheer curiosity, who won the game the night that Camp Starlight Lower Camp paid a visit. First we asked the Junior Girls, who were happy to report that Camp Starlight was captured by the candid cam on the stadium’s jumbo screen, which was SO COOL. But weren’t really sure who’d won the game. Next, we tried the Inter Girls, who thought the ice cream was awesome. They had a lot of fun with their friends. No word about the score.
Well, baseball is really more of a boys sport anyway, isn’t it? So we headed over to boys camp. The Junior Boys could tell us that the Mets lost. Yay! (Yay that the Junior Boys knew that the Mets lost not yay that the Mets lost.) They couldn’t tell us the score. How about who they played? No dice. Okay, did they have fun? Yes! On to the Inter Boys…Someone ate an entire tub of popcorn. Someone else thought the hot dogs were awesome. The Mets had played a team that started with an H. They didn’t know the Mets lost, and they’d forgotten the score. But it was SO MUCH fun! We finally checked the website to get to the bottom of mystery…The Mets did lose. They also played a team that started with an H. Harrisburg, to be exact. The score was 3-2. The Mets may not have scored big, but our Lower Camp’s scored HUGE fun for the evening!
