Cleveland Indians 8 – Minnesota Twins 2
Target Field – Minneapolis, MN
July 22, 2014
***Admission: I did not stay for the whole game, in fact, I left after one inning. I wanted to stay, but my entire body ached, my head was foggy and felt like I was going to pass out, and when I got home, my temperature was 101.2. I felt like crap.***
Though I had a short day at the park, I was able to get my hands on 7 balls before tapping out. The streak of gamers even lives – thanks Oswaldo Arcia!
Not even in the gates yet and already able to get on the board. This eliminates any worry of a “post-ASG funk” for me.
Thanks to a generous grounds keeper guy who was chatting with some Twins, I had my first “in the stadium” ball of the day.
An unknown Twins player with a shot to LF… it was not Trevor Plouffe, though – I know that much.
Once the gates were open to the public (non-STHers), I went over to the LF foul area, since an usher was having a hard time finding a ball that was hit in that area a few minutes prior. I saw which section, but it had rolled all the way down to the front row.
Indians strength coach/staffer. not much else I can say.
I wanted to thank Dom for the great ASG experience and after we talked for a while, I got this pearly treat.
Game ball from Oswaldo Arcia – just ask in Spanish and you shall be rewarded.
There it is, the quick version of my feverish night. I am kicking myself because I was planning on being in RF for most of the time – Carlos Santana hit a bomb to the plaza, too.
Here’s the haul:
Oh yeah, I even got Nick Swisher’s autograph!
