For whatever reason, the Pirates had today’s game scheduled for 12:35 PM, on a SATURDAY.  Maybe it had something to do with Pitt having a football game at 6 today, but either way, it cost me a batting practice.

I got to the stadium at 10 AM, and this was the scene:

They were cutting the grass.  In the meantime, there were only three other people there during the first ten minutes of season ticket holder time.  Had there been batting practice, I would’ve been having a banner day.

Since there was nothing going on, I sat down and watched the autograph collectors scamper down to the front row whenever a Pirate player would poke their head out of the dugout.
