Here's Part 2 of my trip to Toledo. This features night shots of downtown and the skyline, as well as the atmosphere of Fifth Third Field and being at a Toledo Mud Hens game.

First Base entrance of Fifth Third Field...


Outfield Entrance...


Second Base Gate...


That is one mean looking Mud Hen...


Picnic tables in the outfield...


Finally in the park Friday night...


Cool scoreboard...


Crowd coming in, btw, this game between the Mud Hens and Syracuse Sky Chiefs was a sellout, 10,300 in attendance, 100% capacity.




Buildings of the Warehouse district from the park...



Downtown Toledo from the grandstands, sorry about the blurriness...





Park Inn, my hotel, and I guess very popular with Mud Hens fans or downtown goers from out-of-town...


I liked this guy's name, Deik Scram, his number looked awesome, but he sucked both nights I was here...


Muddy, the Mud Hens mascot, entertaining the crowd...



Scoreless in the middle of the 6th


However, Syracuse got two earned runs to take a 2-0 lead in the 8th...


Mud Hens pitchers practising... what a place to do it...



Fifth Third Field @ night...




Mud Hens @ bat in the bottom the the 9th, still down 2-0.


Finally, a HOME RUN! Too bad it was a solo home run...




But that was it for the Mud Hens, as they lose 2-1. They lost the second game on Saturday night, too, 7-5 after being down 4-0 in the first.


Fifth Third at night...


Ball park from my room @ the Park Inn...


Downtown from my room...



Toledo night skyline shots... these two were the best of all the shots I took...



National City, Riverfront Apartments, and ToledoEdison..


Fiberglass Tower, you can barely see it, because it has no lights on, since it is seeking a major tenant...


Downtown from Riverfront Promenade...



One Seagate...


Skyline from the Cherry Street Bridge...




One Seagate, btw, the headquarters for Fifth Third Bank in Northwest Ohio






Crowne Plaza and Fifth Third, I like the "dramatic" look of this shot...


Riverfront Walk...

I love Clete Thomas. I think he got like three hits during his first game as a Tiger or something like that.

BTW, that night shot of the field is gorgeous.:)
