4-14-10 Progressive Field

It was time for my return to Progressive Field in Cleveland.  Of the ballparks that I’ve traveled to, I enjoy ballhawking most at Progressive Field.

I arrived at 3:30 and was second in line behind fellow Pittsburgh ballhawk Nick Pelescak.

When the gates opened, I was hoping to fill my pockets with Easter Eggs.  Alas, I only found one ball, despite looking in virtually every row and seat.  At the very least, I was on the board.

My second ball of the day was from Indians reliever Chris Perez.  A ball rolled to the warning track and several of us asked for it.
