6-18-10 PNC Park

I had the opportunity to watch batting practice on the field today.  I had to be in the Pirates administrative offices at 4:15, where I would receive a lanyard and Suite tickets for tonight’s game.

However, the downfall of this opportunity is that the participants must stay in a small 15×15 area or so in center field.  So snagging balls isn’t that easy.

Wow being on the field is tough for snagging baseballs but it looks cool. The suite looks awesome, was it air-conditoned? Where do you get your decoy balls because I want to keep the balls I snag and give away other balls to kids. Thanks Erik.
