I made another trip to Cleveland to attempt to improve upon my four ball showing from yesterday.

I got to the ballpark an hour early to ensure that I would be at the front of the line.

The ball was in a little divit, so it took about 3-5 minutes of jostling the ball around until I finally had ball #7 in my grasp.  The ball had “Expect to Win,” written on it.

I received my final ball, ball #8,  of the day off of the bat of Mat Gamel.  He hit a high fly ball to right center that I camped out underneath and made an easy catch.    This particular ball had the phrase, “Best Catch Ever,” written on it.  It made me smile.  I was thinking to myself, “Yea, that was a pretty nice catch.”

I like how the Brewers write these crazy things on their baseballs.  It’s unique.  It’s different. 

When the game began, I went over to the Home Run Porch in left field.  The closest any ball came was a Ryan Garko foul
ball that traveled about 350 feet.  I was about 25 feet away from it and lost a foot race to the spot.

I left about half way through the game.

Nice blog Like the pics

I agree with Hamel. It is stealing and his analogy is spot on. There really isn’t any way around it. I am surprised that players don’t run over and grab the balls and ask the guy with the trick what the F they’re doing.

Great blogs, I dont agree with Hamel, its just bp its not like you are doing the glove trick during the game.
