It was a pretty day to catch some baseball, especially in Cincinnati. As soon as we got to the ballpark, we had about 2 hours to hours to kill. We wandered around the ballpark and the riverfront and took photos like this one.
So yeah, I sometimes make ridiculous faces. But anyway, we walked around for about another hour and looked at different gate entrances. After walking around we ate a bite at Johnny Rockets. (Me love Bacon Cheese Fries!!!) Afterwards, we went to the Hall of Fame Museum and picked up our batting practice tickets. Next the guide came and led us out to right field, where I sprinted to see if I could find some Easter Eggs, and wouldn’t you know it I found one. Rocco didn’t run for eggs today cause his knee was hurting ( Who’s Rocco? Rocco Sinisi is a regular at Great American who has snagged around 800 baseballs). Ball 2 didn’t require any effort (same goes for ball 3,4, and 5) it was just a toss-up from Logan Ondrusek. Ball 3 was thrown by Aroldis Chapman after I asked him for it in Spanish. I didn’t get anything else the rest of Reds bp. When the rest of the gates opened, I went to left field and of course didn’t find any eggs. Ball 4 was a over throw by Juan Perez, so I had to go back a few rows to get it. Ball 4 is actually kind of funny. My brother went to get me something to drink cause I was craving of thirst, a minute later I noticed that a ball was on the warning track so rushed down the steps to the front row as Chad Gaudin was about to pick it up I asked him for the ball he looked up and tossed it right up. That was it for the day. As soon as the game started we settled into our seats in straight away left.
The highlight of the night was this…..
Yes that’s right!!! Homer Bailey pitched a no-hitter going perfect in 7 innings until he walked somebody. You have to give the guy some credit, pitching 2 no-no’s in his career now that’s pretty impressive!!!!
