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.

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.

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.
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.
Rodriguez would go on to knock in a run with a base hit here. I captured it all on video:
