9/24/09 @ Miller Park

This was my last home game of the 2009 season.  Due to a few family obligations, I scaled back on some of the games I would attend this week.

This entry will be short and sweet…I have to catch a flight to Denver in a few hours…

Would you believe I snagged four baseballs on this day and I do not know which player(s) they came courtesy of?

Ball #1 came off the bat of a right-handed Phillies hitter.  I ran about 25 feet to my left and made a few adjustments, catching the ball on the fly in about the 6th row.

Balls #2, #3 and #4 were all tossed up by various Phillies pitchers over the next 45 minutes.  I have no idea who the hell any of them were.  One guy even threw me a decent knuckleball
(Ball #3).

I thought the powerful Phils would have a much better showing…oh well.

Thanks. Actually, I do not throw “dummy” baseballs back on the road. I try to mind my manners a bit more when I’m a guest at someone else’s ballpark.
I’m going to your blog right now!

CASEY…
It’s all about positioning!

BRIAN…

Good luck to your BoSox this postseason.
