I recently attended Brewers On Deck last weekend and I must say it was great o get back into the baseball mood. Opening Day is only a month and a half away and I can not wait. The Brewers look promising this year and the team seems to be happy. We just need to get that Rickie Weeks deal done.
My plans this coming year consist of attending around 20 games at Miller Park and taking trips to Kansas City in April to visit Jeremy Jeffress, Lorenzo Cain, and Alcides Escobar. Then in June I’m planning on going to Miami for the Marlins series with Matt, Nick, and Kenny. Then two weeks after that if the plans come through going to historic Fenway park for a visit to see the Crew take on Red Sox Nation. Then to wrap up my road trips I’d like to hit up PNC Park in Pittsburgh with Wiley, Matt, and family.
I’m hoping to have another successful year in terms of catching baseballs and enjoying myself at the park. The Brewers keep me out of trouble in the summer. I will be attending the Arctic Tailgate sometime at the end of this month to get my Opening Day tickets and a few other games I’d really like to go to. I’ll take some pictures and have a post about the tailgate. Superbowl XLV is coming up!
GO PACK GO!
My day started with me waking up at 5 AM to head to Miller Park to pick up my buddy Kenny. We left Miller Park around 6 and were on our way to Cincinnati for the 3 game homestand against our Milwaukee Brewers. I was very excited to go to Cincinnati and talk with some of the Brewers and get some autographs. We arrived at our hotel in Cincy around 2 PM ET time. As soon as we got checked in we went to the players entrance to try for some autographs and some pictures. I started off the day with a Casey McGehee autograph and picture as well as autographs from Craig Counsell and Trevor Hoffman and pictures with all of them and Alcides Escobar. I learned that either Ryan Braun, 1) Is not very observant at Miller Park, 2) Has a mental problem, or 3) Like to lie and is a flat out dick. I said Hi to him and asked him if he remembered Matt and I shouting during BP Ay Brauny! Every single day we are there and he said no I don’t remember that. I am starting to dislike him more and more every day. Here’s so pictures of the start of the day.
I decided to move over to Left Field to play some lefties and to see what would happen.
This would be my view and BASEBALL #3 and BASEBALL #4 would get tossed to me by Brandon Kintzler and Joe Inglett. I would proceed to catch another baseball on the fly for BASEBALL #5 off the bat of George Kottaras. Jeremy was happy when I caught the ball and I gave him a fist pump. That was my 304th career baseball and 150th of the year.
For the game this was our view:
One homer was hit in the game and it was Weeks deep to CF. We came close to 2 at the wall but that was it. Good day #1 in Cincinnati.
5 Baseball’s, 3 batted (2 on the fly), 2 toss up’s

I took the trip to Chicago with Sal, Matt, and Kenny. This was a chilly day and the bp was rather frozen as well. I was lucky to pick up BASEBALL #1 off a bounce in Left Field and that was it for the day. Not too much to talk about.
