I have to say after being shutout at batting practice on Wednesday we really couldn’t do any worse.
So the only expectations of today were to snag one of those promotional Rockies floppy hats .
We were first at the Rockpile gate. When they let us in we found out they were only giving out the hats to adults.
Something to do with being sponsored by Isle of Capri Casino or something.
Hey now, that was why we went to this game in particular. It all worked out though, I gave mine to Mylee and an Indians fan gave his hat to Hunter…Thank you Indians fan guy.
You made my little guy happy.
You’ve got to have your glove for batting practice.
Mylee snagged two balls today.
One was tossed to her by Manny Corpas. The other was caught by a fan and he gave it to her.
I thanked him because that was a cool thing to do and really got her excited. These were her first two BP balls. A few entrys ago I slammed Manny Corpas for not autographing Hunter’s ball when it was just Hunter and me standing right by him.
I slammed him because it was the third time he had refused to sign for Hunter and I this year. So, Manny I take it back and I thank you for tossing that BP ball to my girl. I realize it’s hard to please everyone..
The kids staking out their spot.
It was a good spot.
Here is Zack with his big *** glove.
I had read about this glove in his Blog, it was pretty cool to see it in person.
Hunter actually snagged three balls but one of them was tossed to the boy beside him and he dropped it. Hunter picked up and was gonna keep it but I convinced him to share with the other kid.
Hunter already had two balls and I explained to him how happy that little boy would be that he got a BP ball to take home and brag about.
I managed to snag three balls myself. The first ball hit the bleachers and it was just me there so it was mine.
The second I straight up caught with Zack Hample as my witness. Oh yea!
The third ball was deflected off a a glove and came straight to me. Some days it’s just like that. Yesterday a shutout and today seven balls between us.
After BP the kids and I went over to visit with Zack.
The kids wanted Zack to autograph their baseballs.
He took the time to sign and talk to them.
It is amazing how just a few minutes can really make a kids day.
Thank you again Zack !!
Hunter, Mylee and Dan’s daugher Emily got to go onto Coors field today.
They played kickball with Dinger.
It was Hunter’s second time with Dinger and Mylee’s first.
Check out Hunter in the purple shirt in the picture below jumping.
Rockies swept the Indians last night, Final score 6-3. This was our first sweep this year. Things are starting to get interesting for the Rockies. I think were all having visions of last years run.
Lets hope so…I’ll be there tonight…
