5-6-11 PNC Park

Today I just didn’t have it.  It wasn’t my day.

Nothing happened on the riverwalk…

Not much else happened for me inside either.  I didn’t get shut out at least.

My first ball of the day was Pedro Alvarez opposite field ground rule double that bounced over the fence.  The ball took a weird hop, and I tried to barehand it.  I dropped the ball, but recovered it at my feet.  I got it here:

My second ball of the day was a home run catch off the bat of an unknown Astro.  I caught it on the fly here.   Standard catch.

My third and final ball of the day came at the very end of batting practice.  Fernando Abad, seen here in a group of Astros pitchers,

turned and threw a ball into the crowd as they were running off the
field.  The ball sailed over my head, landed on the steps, bounced off
the plexiglass to the upper bleachers and back towards the handicapped
seats.  I reached over the railing separating the handicapped seats
from the aisle and caught the ball.

That was it for batting practice.

Three balls.

The weather has been such a burden that our total are so down, but still tomorrow should be good. As always Erik, solid entry.
