9-24-10 PNC Park

Today was a frustrating day at PNC Park.  I didn’t arrive until 5:17 due to coaching, and when I entered the bleachers, the Astros were already hitting.

I thought I was going to get my first ball of the day in center field, but as I set up to do the glove trick, coach Al Pedrique ran the whole way out from the infield as he saw me setting up, grabbed the ball, and hit it back into the infield.
