The day started out with me swinging by PNC Park.
I looked in the Left Field gate at 10:30 am and didn’t see any signs of cages or screens. There would be no batting practice – understandable, since last night’s game didn’t end until around 11:15 PM.
So, I went home and checked the weather for Baltimore. It was looking a little iffy.

I decided to take a little road trip this weekend. My first stop was Baltimore’s Camden Yards.
I had been to the stadium several times last season, with little success. My best showing was a six ball day against the Mets, but other than that I have had terrible luck there. Luckily, at least the weather had decided to cooperate, as it was a nice spring day.
I left about half way through the game to drive to Philadelphia. The
plan was to stay overnight in Philadelphia, and then wake up early the
next morning and drive the rest of the way to New York City.
I was able to watch the Pirates at Diamondbacks live on the drive from Baltimore to Philadelphia.
MLB At-Bat for the Iphone. Love it. Don’t worry, I took this photo moments before leaving the Orioles’ parking lot, I wasn’t driving at that point. Also, I did put my seat belt on after taking the photo.
