I was debating about whether to attend this game, or head to Cleveland with fellow ballhawk Nick. I chose to go to this game because I had ten extra tickets to get Garrett Jones figurines that I could sell for some extra traveling funds.
When I arrived at the park at about 4:20, the tarp wasn’t on the field and the cages weren’t up either. However, by 4:30, the tarp was on. Light rain would arrive just after 4:30 with intense rain beginning around game time.
I was at the end of a pretty long line, so when I finally got into the stadium I made a dash for the foul territory in left field where Brian Burres and Ross Ohlendorf were playing catch.
I was the only one behind them, so it was pretty much guaranteed I would get the ball, I just had to be patient
