Whoa campers! Yes, it was another red letter day on the XTRA INNINGS calendar, as on May 4th and 5th, we headed down the 401 to Toronto (aka The Big Smoker), and the home of the Toronto Blue Jays, the Rogers Centre...uh, that's the Skydome for you older folks...

Yup, pretty big MAJOR LEAGUE stuff if I do say so myself...Thanks to Theresa, Diana and the rest of the Clubhouse Gift Shop staff, we had a great set-up at the entrance of the store, where we spent two days demonstrating the game and chatting up the fans. The Jays, who were matched up against the dreaded Cleveland Indians, let a two run slip away and lost the first game in XTRA INNINGS, but came back the next day and, thanks to back to back dingers in the late innings (one of them a three runner), sent the fans home happy with a big win.

And we went home happy also, having met and shown the game to a plethora of folks...how about that word, eh?..."Plethora"...like, it's not something ya see every day...

XTRA INNGS wants to thank all the people who stopped to chat and play the game - especially the Jodouin family who came all the way down from Sudbury, that's right, 'The Big Nickel" for the two games. Doug dropped by twice with his kids Ethan and Julia. They bought the game and  are now all hooked on XTRA INNINGS....and that's what all you folks should do! If you are at the Rogers Center/Skydome, whatever, pick it up...and you too can get get hooked...and maybe hit a "Grand Slam!"...uh, but it is not that easy...Once again, thanks to all the folks at the Jays, and we hope to see you all down the road for yet another XTRA INNINGS ROAD DEMO XTRAVAGANZA!
