4-22-11 PNC Park, Rained Out

There was an 80% chance of rain forecast for today, and sure enough it rained all day long.

Being the first game of a homestand, Amy and I went to the game.

When we parked at 4:15, it was raining.  When we got to the gate, it was still raining.  We took cover under one of the overhangs.

and I took a few minutes to familiarize myself better with the Nationals pitchers in case any of them were out throwing or in the bullpen.

However, 5PM rolled on by, and the supervisor was no where to be found to open the gates. 

About 5 minutes later he appeared and said, “The game’s cancelled.  It’ll be made up Monday at 7:05.”

Also, rather than get no batting practice, now there is a chance to get an extra BP in for the Monday game, so it’s not all bad.

The weather is looking pretty bad for Pittsburgh the next three days though.  Hopefully Mother Nature cooperates.

3-21-10 McKechnie Field

Today was our last day in Florida.  When I looked out my hotel window, it was overcast and drizzling.  Not good.

We still went to the field early just in case there was batting practice, and sure enough, there was.  The rain had let up.
