Sorry for such a short entry but no time to write now.

Going to AA game over weekend an NOTHING else… NO MLB!!!

I haven’t gone to a MLB game since 4/18 and have a not good stat count snagging wise to join the ballhawk league. Only 2 baseballs, 5 lifetime in MLB. I have been to AAA games and am going to a AA game to keep my snagging skills and hopes up. I am going to a AA game over the weekend and wanted to post ahead of time. Wish me luck.

First Entry- 4/18/09 at Yankee Stadium

      The day started of with a long wait. I got to the stadium at 10 AM when the gates opened at 12:30. I never really thought about how much I would have to wait but it paid off. At about 10:30 I saw ballhawk Zack Hample talking to a stadium employee near where I was waiting. Once he got online next to me, I introduced myself and we talked a little bit. The second the gates opened I ran over to right field and was able to get down to field level below the bleachers. In the first 5 minutes of BP I caught 2 Robinson Cano HR’s (one on the fly, one after a few bounces. That was it for my snagging day. Failure not because of how little I got but how long I went after those 2 without 1 more. As I watched people catch HR after HR i decided to give the section a rest and head to get my look into the stadium. Halfway through my trip around the stadium, I saw the indians on the field and headed to left field. In left I had a chance for a glove trick ball but i had a knot failure and lost my glove to the field. I had to get the guard to get it for me. After that i took a picture with Zack and headed to My seats to get money for food. I got the Chicken Sliders which was really good but expensive. I waited until the 3rd to walk around and get ticket stubs. I got a few including one to section 125. As I went to the section I was wondering where zack was and hoped that he had caught a HR ball from the 2nd inning. As i walked down the aisle, I saw ZACK SITTING THERE. We hung out untill the end of the game. Around the seventh inning we started to try and get a stub from a Legend Seat fan and succeded. You need both a wrist band and a ticket to acess the Legends sections. We both had one of each but when Zack was putting his wrist band on it ripped, and when we were caught, we had to go back. Sorry that i do not have pics for this entry but will get them for the next one.
