Now it is very early in the season and I'm sure as they get further into the season, the crowds will pick up.
|Gwinnett Braves vs Norfolk Tides|
With AAA baseball being one step away from the majors, these guys are really good ballplayers. Saw a lot of good baseball during this game. But at the same time, minor league baseball is a tough business to be in. One of the random pictures I took during the game was of Matt Pagnozzi on first base in the third inning:
|Pagnozzi base hit third inning|
New Jersey Cardinals (New Jersey)
Peoria Chiefs (Illinois)
Palm Beach Cardinals (Florida)
Springfield Cardinals (Missouri)
Memphis Redbirds (Tennessee)
Colorado Springs Sky Sox (Colorado)
Columbus Clippers (Ohio)
Gwinnett Braves (Georgia)
and he has played 33 games in majors during that time also:
St. Louis Cardinals
This guy has been around baseball! Oh yeah, he is also the nephew of the former St Louis Cardinal catcher Tom Pagnozzi ( I knew I had seen that name before).
Going to baseball games is a release for me, it is an escape for me - can't wait for the next game!
One other thing, this is somewhat of a habit now, started years ago when my son first played baseball, I've got to do the book when I'm at a game...
