This would be the only shot at seeing the Cubs this series as Friday bp was cancelled due to heavy rain and Sunday was Fathers day and followed an 8:15 start of this game.
Things got off to a smooth start with the Pirates going, hitting well, and not many fans in the stands yet. I was able to scrum Ball #1-2, then catch a homer for Ball #3 all unidentified. Ball #4 was thrown by Heberto Andrade.
On the LF crosswalk I caught another homer for Ball #5, then headed over to the river walk behind the CF seats for the Cubs heavy hitters.
It got crowded quick, and it wasn’t the best I have seen from the Cubs left handed hitters, I came away with one ball during the Cubs bp, a towering caught homer off the bat of Kyle Schwarber, Ball #6.
I was able to stay for nearly this whole game and got a deep toss up from Andrew Mccutchen in the top of the 5th that sailed almost out to the gate to CF. Ball #7
I’m looking forward to a rest from baseball and to seeing the Tampa Bay Rays next week.
