The Cubs are 9-9 on the season. They open a 3 game series against the dodgers tomorrow. I sure hope they can get a couple wins and win the series. I’ve been to 6 Cubs games in my life. I’ve caught 2 baseballs at Wrigley, one was from Angel Guzman a couple years ago, and the other was from a Marlins player last year. I wish I could go to a lot more games, I love Wrigley, the only baseball event here where I live in Indiana is the Colt World series every august in which the best 15-16 year old teams in the world come to play here. I’ve caught about 112 baseballs from this event. I try to go to other minor league games whenever I can.
On Saturday night I went to the Indianapolis Indians game against the Pawtucket Red Sox. I got there around 5:40 and saw a ball on the warning track. I walked around near the ball and a Indians player that was jogging around tossed it up to me. I was disappointed that Batting practice was already over by the time I got there. After the game started I went for foul balls and 3rd out balls. Somewhere in the middle of the game a Indians player tossed a 3rd out ball over the dugout and I caught it. in the bottom of the 8th inning the Indians had a runner on 3rd with 2 outs and down 3-2. The runner stole home on the pitch and scored. After the 9th inning it was still tied and it started down pouring. There was a hour and 13 minute rain delay and by the time it was over there were not very many people in the stands. The outfield lawn was completely empty. I was hoping to catch a game winning home run in extra innings but it never came. The Indians won on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 13th. The game ended at 12:11 Am.
