It was a Sunday day game, and there was no batting practice. I still went to the game though. Surprisingly, it would be my best game of the week.
From 11-11:30 on Sundays, fans have to stay on the Riverwalk. They are not allowed to enter the main seating bowl, even if they are season ticket holders. While I was waiting near the bullpens, Chan Ho Park got my attention and threw me a ball. He threw it from center field, so I moved back 20 feet before he threw it to give myself plenty of room to make the catch.
Park then motioned for me to give it to a little kid, so I did. He hooked me up with a second ball for me to keep a minute later. However, it was a little short and bounced off the flag pole base and over my head.
Luckily, few people were in the park at the time, so I chased it down easily here:
I took 2 rounds on the field with 310-340-360-340-310 dimensions and had one home run – over the 340 sign in left center.
