Well, the day started off just like any other day this week. Woke up about 7:00 and headed straight to the kitchen obviously to head for a granola bar or two. I don’t like to eat too much for breakfest unless it is on a day off. Slowey and I headed to Hohokam Park and our brand new sleek Dodge Caliber rental. It may be the slowest car in the history of automobiles. I think about 4 cylinders tops, but its great on gas. We arrived at the field slowly but surely, headed to straight to my locker to get ready for some early hitting. After some early hitting with out hitting coach JT and some guys on the team I head back in to relax and grab a Gatorade nutritional shake. We are really taken care off in the clubhouse as far as anything we need or want. I couldnt ask for anymore. At 10 we headed off to the field on a charter bus as always two to a seat me and Matt Moses two Va. boys together. Matt was getting the start that day at third. So I sat around just taking everything in for the first 5 innings. I came in at third for Matt in the 6th. A little nerves were flowing the field was a litle faster than normal and we all know defense is not the strongest part of my game. I got an at bat in the 9th not exactly your ideal one 3 pitches, I took the change-up for a strike, and two check swing sliders for strikes. I was def. hoping to see a fastball at least one since I havent seen pitching in 3 weeks. Oh well though rough at bat it wont be the last. Thats why its a great sport because we have another game today. After the game we headed out to Zipps Sports Bar and Grill to play a little shuffle board and pool. We were there to watch the Tito Ortiz vs. Ken Shamrock UFC fight it ended up being about a 2:23 minute fight with Ortiz dominating the fight. I def. wanted the vet. Shamrock to win. I headed home after that to relax and talk a little baseball with Slowey trying to figure out how pitchers think. Def. a huge advantage to rooming with a pitcher. Then off to bed for about a 9 hour sleep since we gladly had a night game the next day. Until the next time…..
