Last night I watched on the web: CNN, New York Times, Washington Post the Jones/Moore returns coming in. I was there for the whole ballgame from zero returns until the end of the game.
I was watching from the eastern time zone so the game didn’t start until 8 pm. Jones scored in the eighth and ninth innings when Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile came to bat. I knew they were due and we hadn’t heard from them all night and while it wasn’t a surprise when they came through it was still a rush when the home team pulled it out.
Some have said, “there is a god.” But I’ll credit a great get out the vote effort and timely hitting. The New York Times was the first to declare the winner.
