6-11-10 Progressive Field

I decided to attend this game after checking Saturday’s iffy weather forecast.  I left right after work, so I didn’t get to the stadium until just before 5 PM.

I had missed the first 25 minutes of batting practice, which is never a good thing, but I would get on the board soon.

I was checking for any easter eggs that some folks may have missed when Shin Soo Choo hit a home run that landed in the trees in Heritage Park.  I tried to reach in and grab it so I could count it as a hit ball, but I couldn’t reach it.

I pulled out my Cleveland Stick and used it to nudge the ball closer to the wall so I could get it.  It was ball #1.

The next round, Travis Hafner also hit a home run into the trees in Heritage Park, so I ran back over again. 

This ball would be a bit trickier because it was lodged in the branches of one of the trees.

Erik,

Do you know where the players entrance is at Progressive Field?

UDstephen, its just around the corner from gate C, Id say about 150 feet or so past gate C walking towards the home plate entrance.
