6-10-09 Progressive Field

I decided to go to this game despite a gloomy forecast of rain throughout the afternoon and into the evening.

I had changed my mind several times about going.  I had ultimately decided not to go, until the rain forecast changed from 60% chance to 50% chance at around 1PM.

Getting onto the turnpike in Pennsylvania, there were menacing clouds on the horizon ahead.

No rain drops though.

Passing into Ohio, it was just overcast.  Still no rain.

    Dude, I totally agree about the other ballhawk’s ball. I get that all the time from gloveless fans when I use the glove trick on balls that are resting on the field below them after they flubbed a catch. Of course they always claim rightful ownership but I just tell them that if it were really their ball, it would be in their pockets and not on the warning track or in the bullpen.
