8-5-10 PNC Park

The slumping Colorado Rockies were in town for the first game of a four game series.

They weren’t the only ones slumping.

I managed only one ball for the entire Pirates batting practice, thrown to me by Evan Meek.  Evan, if you’re reading this – you’re the man.
I had plenty of opportunities, but the ball just wasn’t bouncing my way today.

That would change when the Rockies came out.

Fellow BHL member Zac Weiss alerted me to a ball at the base of the wall, which I glove tricked here:
