8-18-10 PNC Park

I got on the board before the gates opened today.

I was standing on the Riverwalk waiting for a home run to land on the concourse, but left around 4:50 to head back up to the gate.  Just as I left, a passerby informed me that I had just missed one.  I turned and saw fellow ballhawk Nick Pelescak knee deep in the weeds, frantically searching for a ball. 

I turned around and jogged back and joined in the search.  After a minute, I found the ball in the weeds, for my first ball of the day.

Upon entrance to the left field bleachers, I noticed a ball land near the foul pole, so I ran over and scooped that one up for ball #2.
