Well I am back from the all-star break, and it was a ton of fun. It was really a cool experience, and it was really cool to get to play with guys from other teams around the league. The first night we were there we went on a dinner cruise down the Delaware River, followed by a party at the Yankee club inside of the stadium. The second day was a long day. We got to the field at noon, where we had lunch. Then we hit batting practice at around 2. After that we had a 2 hour autograph signing, followed by the home run derby, and then the game. We won the game 5-3, and after the game they had a party for us at the Marriott hotel. The next day was a long day of travel, and we didn’t get back to the Altoona stadium until 4 in the afternoon.
So like the title says, our first game back I saw the first triple play that I have ever seen. It was the first inning, runners on first and second, and there was a line out to the second baseman that looked like it could have hit the ground. It was a catch, and then threw to second and on to first for a triple play. I was sitting in the stands and couldn’t believe it. It was pretty crazy.
Well I pitch tomorrow at 6:05 against the Harrisburg Senators. So I will be back with a breakdown of the outing shortly after. Until then everybody take care.
