Rain, Afternoon Games, Baltimore Season Ticket Offer
I skipped Tuesday 7/21′s game completely because the area was hit was strong thunderstorms around 3 PM. In fact, there was dime sized hail that accompanied the storm in my area. It was pretty cool, but it ruined any chance of batting practice.
I went down to the stadium on Wednesday 7/22, hoping that since the Pirates got shut out yesterday, that maybe they’d take batting practice. They weren’t going to. I peeked through the gate and saw no screens or batting cage set up. So, I left, without entering the park. I decided that if there’s not going to be BP, I’m not going to the game. The Pirates have a very generous ticket exchange program, and I can exchange my unused tickets for any future game, excluding SkyBlast. I’ll be redeeming my unused tickets for games with nice promotions.
I am planning on heading down to Camden Yards again on Monday. I have one extra season ticket. It is in Section 14 Row JJ. Great seat on the first base line. Asking price is $32, which is the season ticket price. If you’re interested, let me know.
Finally, the Pirates traded Adam LaRoche today. LaRoche has been poor this year, hitting in the .240′s. I’ll be interested to see what the Pirates got back. This opens the door for Garrett Jones to play first base, and a possible promotion of Lastings Milledge to take over left field.
