7-29-10 Progressive Field

After getting a favorable report from Nick Pelescak about Wednesday’s batting practice, I decided to make a third trip to Cleveland.  The Indians decided to open the entire outfield rather than just the right field seats on Wednesday, and they did the same thing today.

I began the day in left field and got ball #1 from Shelley Duncan on the left field wall.

7-27-10 Progressive Field

I had an awful day at Progressive Field.

It started at 3PM with early batting practice.  Nick Pelescak, Happy Youngster and I took 10 minute shifts watching our bags while the other two were outside of the home run porch gate – trying to get a ball.

No balls would even make it out, despite a good 40 minute or so session.

To make matter worse, at 4:30, I went to look for balls in the trees at Heritage Park, but it was closed for some private party.

3-20-10 Osceola County Stadium

Today was day 2 of the Spring Training trip and my dad and I were back at Osceola County Stadium to see the Astros and Yankees.

The day started off well when I went and watched some of the Astros minor leaguers at one of the practice fields,

It was the only ball I would get for about the first half hour or so.  When the Astros second string started hitting at the practice field directly adjacent to Osceola County Stadium, I was ready.

My dad and I left the game after all the regulars came out of the game and headed for Bradenton FL.  We would see the Pirates and Rays the next day…
