I started my day walking to Miller Park from General Parking at this sight:
Yeah, not such a beautiful sight. Miller Park and the Brewers were off to a gloomy start this year. But, on April 6, it was a Tuesday, and the exact same conditions, and the exact same seats. And on May 12th last year, I snagged my first homerun ball ever. On a Tuesday, rainy day, roof closed, same section, same jersey. Can history repeat itself 3 times?
Oh, and a random picture of Matt, lol:
Doesn’t he look real pumped?!? DURRRRRRRRR.
When I walked into Friday’s we got ourselves a patio seat out behind the bullpen. It was literally us and 3 other tables. Not much competition if the Brewers could acctually poke some out today:
The pleasant view I had from Friday’s for the action of batting practice. With my trusty glove sitting on the end of the table. The day started off blah and didn’t get any more exciting then that. I did manage to hit “DD” Doug Davis up for a toss up while sitting there. BASEBALL #1. But all I came out with was one baseball during the Brewers portion of BP. So Lame.
I then proceeded to roam the bleachers for a bit in RF and found a clean goose egg just sitting underneath a bleacher with one little scuff on it. I found this rather weird because BP had been taking place for almost a half hour and I ended up finding it when there was a few people in the bleachers already. But I’ll take the ball for BASEBALL #2.
The moral of the story is that I did not catch another homerun ball today even though the conditions were in my favor. Oh well. Not many chances you get to have a play on a homerun ball. I’m happy I have 3 under my belt and I’m fairly content!
OH! This is my throw back baseball for if I catch an opposing teams home run! It reads, “GO GOMEZ GO”. Kinda an inside joke.:
