5-29-2010 Great American Ballpark

I figured I would take a trip to Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati today to snag a few baseballs and get three Joey Votto figurines (I had three tickets as I traded in two tickets from my 13 game plan that I couldn’t use).  I planned to sell the Figurines to help pay for the gas.

Of course, when I arrived at the park, this was waiting for me:

The gates opened at 5:10 to season ticket holders, so I rushed in, only to find a large tour group already occupying right field.  Fantastic.  No easter eggs.

I got ball #1 of the day off the bat of Jay Bruce in right field.
