8-22-10 PNC Park

What?  A Sunday day after night game?  You know I usually don’t go to those.  But today, I did.

And here’s the reason why:
The ball was soaked, meaning it was from the previous day’s batting practice. 
In other news, my blog was featured today in Rochester Minnesota’s Post Bulletin newspaper.

Here’s the link.  Thanks to Alan Schuster of mygameballs.com for the tip.

    I was going to ask you if you had ever snagged only one ball in a game, with that lone ball being one that you found in the grass outside the stadium. However, you answered my question because that’s exactly what you did today. Good luck chasing Zack’s single season record.

    You MUST snag Pujols’ 400th career homer tonight!
    Make it your mission and make me proud, dammit!!
