Southwest winds ALL week , and were off to a good start
I was on time , and saw each and every ball leave the yard .
And I caught zero ....lol. I think everyone was a little rusty
having not had a game here in almost 2 weeks. An above
average amount of scrums , with almost everyone spending
some time sprawled out on the pavement going for a ball.
THIS I will not do anymore. Just not worth it. Unless......
it's a game homerun .
I played Prince Fielder on Sheffield each and every time he
came to the plate. Even a free steak sandwich from the roof-
top could not keep me from being there. Twice in the past
2 years an offer came for free food and I accepted.....and missed
a street homerun. NOT GONNA HAPPEN this time. Moments
after declining the offer I had a good jump on Fielders 464ft
BOMB that went across Sheffield , through a tree , off my HEAD!
and in to some bushes lining the walkway .
They say a tree is 90 % air.....well.....it nicked a small piece of
that 10 % preventing me from making the grab on the fly . It
was a glancing blow to my head, so thankfully I didnt get hurt
and the ball didnt go ricocheting across the street . Like the Adam
Dunn homerun that hit a bike seat of all things sending it 30 feet away .
Nice grab on the Fielder, Dave. I may have a buyer if the two of you can agree on price. His name is Andrew and he can be reached at Manningfan4ever@yahoo.com. I THINK the carrier is the right one,,,if not, then substitute hotmail for yahoo. He is a Fielder (among others) collector.
