    I know about the town of Saint-Lô, I'm an amateur WW II historian, so they're the Cardinals? If you have a picture of him in uniform, you should post it up.

    yes, unfortunatly St Lô is well known about WWII, not far from the landing beaches and about 1hour and half from me.
    The name of Saint Lô's baseball team is "the Jimmers".

    This picture is from the team he played 2 years ago, the Redwings from Rennes. (Rennes in France is twinned with Rochester NY, that's why they choose the name "Redwings")

    And this one is a team pic of his new team of saint Lô, he is standing the 4th from the left

    I did not know they played baseball in France.

    Looks like his father can be proud of him.

    That's cool. And I'm sure you are justifiably proud.

    yes, i'm very proud of him and proud to have passed on him this passion, the problem now is since he came with me in USA in 2015 and in one week we went at 4 ball games he want now every years to come back in your country to see MLB games :D

    Thank you very much Andy :)
     
  11. Make sure you come to Busch Stadium. Best fans backing the best team in baseball.

    Right. The place where baseball's a bit 'hairy,' Busch Stadium. Come to Seattle, home of Safeco Field, the House That Griffey Built. Come for the rabid fans, stay for the scrumptious foods.

  13. But not for a decent home team. Hey, go to all of them. That way you can see a proper game in St. Louis, and a farm team in Seattle.
