Strong West winds helped produce almost a dozen balls in batting practice .
Moe was all by himself for the first hour as the rest of the hawks , including
myself , were no shows. By the time I arrived the Pirates were hitting and
Moe had caught 4 . I took my spot and within 10 minutes I had caught one ,
on a great running catch I might add ,and had my sights on a second before
a Traffic Management truck momentarily stopped on Waveland and blocked
my path . A valent effort to leap on the roof of the truck and make the grab
came up a little short as you can see on Ballhawk Cam . ( video below )
Sheffield came up empty.....which is a big surprise with the wind and the Cubs
newest edition Jim Edmonds. Maybe tomorrow Jimmy will send a few our way .
In the game Soriano came as close as it gets without hitting Waveland sending
the first pitch just inside the foul pole where it rattled around the steps leading
up to the bleachers. A fan coming back from the consesions did a great job holding
on to his beer as he made the one handed pickup.
