Today was a family day. We went to the zoo. We went out for lunch. We diddled-we daddled.
But, this is a baseball blog-not a family activity blog.
Fast forward to 5pm. Brewers were playing the Padres @ Peoria Stadium. I got there early for BP. I rushed through the gates like my pants were on fire only to find no batting cages or nets on the playing field. WTF!!!?? You have to be kidding me!
That sucked. So, what did I do you ask? I twiddled my fingers for an hour and a 1/2 until the first pitch. Talk about torture.
The game was uneventful and I just wandered around for 3 hours.
Brewers lost 6-5.
After the game concluded, home plate umpire Delfin Colon was walking off the field with his crew when I asked him for a game ball. He dug in his baseball pouch and tossed me one.
At least I didn’t go home empty handed.
