Sunset on the Susquehanna

The Harrisburg Senators had their first Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamonds Night, an official tie-in between Marvel (Comics or Studios, I’m not sure which) and Minor League Baseball. The game started at six and over by 8:15; enforcing the pitch clock and shortening the time between innings really makes things flow.

I walked across the Walnut Street Bridge to Front Street in Harrisburg while the sun was setting and after. Some photos.

About Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamond… I have thoughts.

But I’ll save them for another time.
