When I got to PNC Park, the sky was overcast, but it wasn't raining, but a few minutes after I got there, it started to rain.
Below: Rain, please stop.
Before the rain began, I peeked in the stadium onto the field to see if there was any BP, but it was cancelled because of the rain. So when the stadium opened at 5, another ballhawk, Zac Weiss, and I were the first two into the stadium, I ran down into the bleachers, and found a wet ball laying in the first row.
Below: Spot where I found the ball.
It was barely raining at this point, I thought the Giants would have taken BP, but the tarp stayed on the field.

I wanted to keep the wet ball, so I did something I did once last year.

After that, I ran down the first base side where some Giants pitchers were throwing.

I tried to get Wilson's autograph, but I couldn't.
I was glad Brandon Wood got the start for this game.
