I decided to see the Boston Red Sox at Progressive Field. It would be the first time I’d see the Red Sox in the regular season (I had seen them several times before in Spring Training).
I got to the stadium after 4PM, but was still the first in line. The Indians were already hitting, so I was hoping to find a few Easter Eggs. Unfortunately, when I got into the right field stands, I didn’t find anything, although a young kid did find one.
I checked in the bullpen briefly and saw this:
I went to work immediately, throwing my glove into the bullpen to nudge the ball closer to the wall, and then glove tricking ball #1. With the ball in my possession, I ran over to Heritage Park to search the trees.
