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 was back in Bird Town for the second time this week.
Since the Orioles had a left hander starting, the Angels would have plenty of right handed bats hitting (since they have a fair share of switch hitters). I felt quite confident that I’d be able to improve on my three ball showing from this past Monday.
I arrived at Camden Yards at 3:45ish, and saw this:
Game: 2 balls (2 thrown)
