Today I just didn’t have it. It wasn’t my day.
My first ball of the day was Pedro Alvarez opposite field ground rule double that bounced over the fence. The ball took a weird hop, and I tried to barehand it. I dropped the ball, but recovered it at my feet. I got it here:
My second ball of the day was a home run catch off the bat of an unknown Astro. I caught it on the fly here. Standard catch.
My third and final ball of the day came at the very end of batting practice. Fernando Abad, seen here in a group of Astros pitchers,
field. The ball sailed over my head, landed on the steps, bounced off
the plexiglass to the upper bleachers and back towards the handicapped
seats. I reached over the railing separating the handicapped seats
from the aisle and caught the ball.
That was it for batting practice.
