Once again today I woke up at 7 with the intentions of playing catch with Brewers Pitcher Jeremy Jeffress:
I started the day off wtih a John Axford autograph and after the team bus rolled in I was hoping that Jeffress was not on it. About 7 minutes later he pulled up in a taxi and asked me if I was going to be able to get inside with him. I said, “I’ll follow you, If anyone asks I’m with you”. So I followed him in the players entrance and we walked in and he told me he had to go change and to meet him on the field. I went up to the field and got a field pass! I could not believe it. I was on the field and playing catch with a MLB Player. We played catch for a few minutes and after I still got to stay on the field and watch BP. I talked with Carlos Gomez, Craig Counsell, and Brandon Kintzler as well. Before Jeffress went in he signed a baseball for me and gave me the two baseballs we played catch with. This was an experience of a lifetime! Than you Jeremy Jeffress. You made a fan for life! Here’s some pictures:
We would sit behind the dugout for the game and see something interesting. Braun hit a pop fly to RF during the 4th inning and he didn’t run it out or anything. Fielder came into the dugout after the inning and SCREAMED, ITS STILL A EFFING GAME! Braun was benched for the game due to his lack of hustling. I have a feeling he wants out of Milwaukee.
After the game Jeremy Jeffress tossed me his hat and I got Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks batting gloves. It was the best day of my life. I can’t thank Jeremy Jeffress enough.
