8-24-10 PNC Park
Things got off to a great start before the gates even opened. Someone on the Pirates hit a home run that hit off of the song whale tent on the riverwalk, took a bounce, and then landed in the tall grass here:
Once the gates opened, the Pirates were already into their final round of batting practice, and they were all hitting opposite field, so I didn’t get a single ball from them.
That’s when Adam Wainwright came in and helped me out.
