Yesterday, I got a call from a guy at the Des Moines Register who’s writing a feature story about how to get baseballs at Principal Park, home of the Triple-A Iowa Cubs. (He found me through my web site.) There’s going to be a little blurb about me in there somewhere (and possibly a link to this blog) so he interviewed me for half an hour. I’ve never been to an Iowa Cubs game so I quickly went to their site and pulled up the seating chart. I told him that sections 11 and 12 look like the best place to go for foul balls…and I talked about the strategies I use at major league games. When the piece comes out next month, I’ll share the link.
Right now, I’m downright angry that I can’t attend tonight’s Mets game. I’m not working tonight, but I’m meeting with my writing group. I love the group–don’t get me wrong–but I love Shea Stadium even more, especially when the weather is perfect and two lefties (Glavine & Pettitte) are going at it. I’m cringing at the thought of all the foul balls I’ll be missing.
