Oh How I Love You, Philadelphia
Yesterday, we went to Citizens Bank Park to watch the Phillies play the New York Mets. I didn’t snag a lot but it was still a great time at the Bank.
Anyway, I went out to left field, for Phillies batting practice. my dad told me that the Mets were throwing in the bullpen so I ran over there. I took off my Phillies gear, put my mets shirt on and went to the pen. Johan Santana was throwing.
After Santana, finished throwing, bullpen catcher Eric Langill ended up with the baseball. He was talking to Johan in the corner of the bullpen. I called out his name and got an easy toss up for my 50th carreer baseball.
We went back to Phillies batting practice and I stood in the center field camera well, which is open to fans during BP. I had the whole well to myself so any home runs hit there were sure to be mine.
Michael Stutes came and fielded a ball that was pretty much directly below me. I asked him for the baseball and he threw it up. The red line shows the patch of the ball and I guess the green represents me.
An usher gave Tim and I baseball cards.
I told Tim that if he took off his Mariners gear and wore his blue little league shirt, which was blue, the players would toss him more baseballs. Right after, Tim Byrdak threw his his third of six baseballs.
It appears that the Mets hate me. I went to right field for about five minutes. After I did not snag anything, i went back to left because that is where the homers were going. Suddenly, two consecutive homeruns were hit to right field .They both hit the same seat I was just in. I can not win.
If you don’t know, I don’t ballhawk during games. Since I am a Phillies fan, I like to just enjoy the game. This was my view of the field.
