The High Falls in Rochester, NY

There's a pretty waterfall in downtown Rochester, NY. The Genesee High Falls. It used to power their industry back in the day. Now it’s a park. An old railroad bridge has been made into a pedestrian bridge that you can view the falls from.

Anyway, it’s pretty close to Frontier Field. Walking distance. And there’s a parking garage between Frontier Field and the falls. Parking is free in the garage (at least on weekends - not sure about evenings). You can pay $6 to park across the street from the ballpark, but I recommend parking in the city garage for free instead, and stopping off to see the falls.

I went to scenic Rochester, NY to see Tides play the Red Wings. (That's the Rochester Red Wings, the Twins' AAA team, not the hockey team.)

Janish made a really nice play Saturday night, laying out to rob Twins top prospect (and IL player of the month) Zack Granite of a hit. Holding up the ball so the umpire can see he made the catch:

I wanted to get a nice shot of him on defense, seeing as it’s probably my last chance. That was the best I could do in the low light. He moves too darned fast, even at his advanced age. ;-)

Some photos from Sunday's game. (The lighting was a lot better, since it was a day game, though there was a lot less action to photograph.)

Warming up before the game...

During the national anthem.

At bat.

They light up the falls with colored lights at night.

I should have gone to the lookout on the far end of the bridge after the Saturday night game. I bet the post-game fireworks would have looked great. Next time...
