9-20-09 PNC Park

Today was a Sunday game, so one never knows what to expect.  Sometimes there will be batting practice, sometimes not.

Since today was a day game following a day game, there would be a full batting practice with both teams hitting.

The Pirates hit first, but the gates aren’t open early to season ticket holders on Sundays.  So, I had to stand and helplessly watch from behind the bullpen.

During this time, I watched as one usher pocketed a ball, while another picked up three and tossed them back on the field. 

After waiting for 30 minutes, 11:30 rolled around, and someone from the security building should’ve come to let us in.  It didn’t happen.

I watched as the staff members sat and played on their phones, as the time ticked away.
