5-23-2010 PNC Park
It was a dreaded Sunday game. The game last night ended around midnight. Surely there wouldn’t be batting practice.
Each Sunday, I head down to the stadium and peer through the gates around 11:15 or so. If the cages are up, I will stay, if not, I just turn around and go home. No big deal.
I hate Sunday games because there’s always kids everywhere, and there’s always some special event bringing throngs of people.
I was floored when I saw this through the gate Sunday morning:
