Today I got to go down to the first row thanks to Robert who had an extra ticket by him for this game. During Batting Practice I did get one ball from the Giants it was a Ground Rule Double off the warning track.

Despite the rain over night the hosers still need to do their thing. The tarp they cover the infield with may of help their job security for the day.
