8-7-10 PNC Park

It was a Saturday game at PNC Park – but it was also a Skyblast (Fireworks + George Thorogood concert), so there would be a sellout crowd on hand today.

My goal was to snag seven balls to give me 400 on the season.

I was second in line at the gate and was the first one into the bleachers.  There wasn’t anything going on in the cage, but a few Pirates must’ve taken some early swings because I found two balls laying in the front row here:

I then made my way over to foul territory as a few of the Pirates position players were warming up.  New Pirates catcher Chris Synder threw me his ball as he walked off the field for ball #3.

How nice was it that we had an hour just for STHs instead of the usual 30 minutes. Glad to see you took advantage of it.

Left field was “incredibly crowded”? I don’t think you know how lucky you are to ballhawk in Pittsburgh man! I only wish I had to deal with crowds like that! Good luck on 1,000 pal!
