Pirates' second baseman Neil Walker, one of the good guys in the game, said he is going to start reading his copy this week to brush up on his Pirates' history. He then went into his locker, pulled out two of his baseball cards, and signed one for each of my kids.
Tonight's game is a dud. The Orioles are pounding the Pirates, 7-1 as we head to the ninth inning. But I did witness something I had never seen in a baseball game before. The Orioles' Chris Davis shattered his bat, but still managed to hit a homerun over the right field fence. Davis is a very strong man, indeed.
