It’s been a busy week for me so to catch up with a few things…
First off, hail and farewell to Cory Sullivan who was released to add Scott Posednik to the Ironpig’s roster. Posednik actually broke up today’s potential perfect game by Rochester’s highly touted prospect Kyle Gibson. Gibson tossed the first 6 innings like a finely tuned guitar and came out with the win as Ironpig’s starter Bump allowed his ERA to rise to 6.18 on the season allowing 6 runs in 5 innings.
It was a beautiful day at the Coke today. Saw a bunch of friends and was surprised at the low attendance for a Sunday 84 degree partly cloudy day game. 9,080 fans purchased tickets today and I would say it was close to that many in attendance. Also noticed a familiar face in the stands that I normally see behind a ticket window. It seems the office is giving employees a day at the game to enjoy. Awful nice of them. Get a perspective of the experience from our view point.
Seems the Ironpigs can’t quite pull out the brooms this year. Another 3 win 1 loss series. Not that I’m complaining as they have been playing far beyond the Pig teams of the past but it would be nice to pull out the broom and wave it proudly following a third out.
Last night the Noise Nation also got to see the LV Steelhawks 3rd consecutive win! The Hawks took down the Richmond Revolution in their final home game of the 2011 season. Really great people in that organization and look forward to 2012! Ran into a reporter from the NY Times who was looking to learn more about arena football and smaller market sports fans. Nice guy and all had a great time!
Saw a tweet earlier from our good friend Tommy V out in Reading.. Mike Spidale became the leader in all time hits for the Reading Phillies this afternoon. Good to see such an accomplishment by a good guy.
That’s about I have today. I’ve been getting a lot of sun this week and finally installed my AC.
It’s time for a nap.
