Today was a Sunday game, a day game after a night game, so there was a good chance of there being no batting practice.
I was pretty happy when I peered into the gate and saw the cage set up.
Upon entering the stadium, the Pirates were warming up in left field. I walked over and sat down in this section.
It is a handicapped section. Its a good spot for catching over throws.
I got ball #1 of the day from Ian Snell. When he was done catching, he simply turned and threw me the ball. I didn’t even ask for it. Just another reason why Ian Snell is awesome.
I waited behind John Grabow, who was catching with Sean Burnett, for an overthrow, but it didn’t happen.
Batting practice was beginning,
