5-31-09 PNC Park

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,

Hi Erik…

Man, I can’t stand Sunday day games. I don’t know how you do it? Too much sun, too many kids, not enough batting practice. Way to score three balls though.
