Friday, October 1 2010, Brewers V.S. Reds @ Great American Ballpark

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.

So the gates opened at 5:40 and they would not let me stand by the dugout so I went to talk to Jeremy Jeffress and asked when he wanted to play catch. He said we couldn’t do it during BP but he’d figure something out. So I went on the Prowl for my 300th Career Baseball. I placed myself in LF Center Field with Weeks up to bat. Swing, and a DEEP fly ball. It hit off the top step and into the concourse hitting a wall and bouncing back and rolled down the stairs right to be for BASEBALL #1 and career baseball #300. I was happy. But seconds later Braun hit one and I dove over the seats to catch it on the fly for BASEBALL #2 and Trevor Hoffman was watching me catch it.

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.
