One thing is for sure, the Metropolitans have nothing to offer during bp.
I ended up with a scrum and a caught homer-Ball #1-2, for the Pirates portion of bp, and came away with nothing by the time the Mets were done.
Another thing for sure is that PNC groundscrew are the worst at preparing for, and being flexible for setting up bp even if a little rain occurs. I mention this because to everyone’s surprise, on Friday the Pirates groundscrew tarped the field and removed all bp equipment from the field. For what, about 2 minutes tops of lite rain and a cloudy sky which passed within minutes, turning to nothing but sunshine the rest of the time.
This was a better game, one which I was able to enjoy with my wife and kids.
During bp I was able to come away with two scrums and a caught homer, no big excitement. I believe one of these was during the Mets portion but they were again terrible.
After the Pirates LF Jordan Luplow finished warming up in the top of the first he spotted me and my daughter Shianne on the LF crosswalk and threw us his baseball. Ball #4. Very cool, I used to be able to hold her and catch toss ups but now she is too tall and just stood next to me.
Shianne and I with the Luplow toss.
