This was my first game in two weeks, so I was hoping for a really good day. The day started off here.

When the gates opened at 5, we all started to run in, but a supervisor told us, that we weren't allowed to run in.
Oh, what a shock the Pirates got off the field early! Again...

Pirates BP on this day was pathetic.
Then the Diamondbacks came out, and I was hoping for a good BP from them.

Just before 5:30 I went over to Right Field to look for easter eggs, I couldn't find any. While I was up in right, ballhawk Zac Weiss, told me the first name of the Diamondbacks bullpen catcher, Jeff Motuzas, I yelled for Jeff, and then he threw a ball my way, I caught it, then I had possession of it, but then I somehow dropped it, and then another guy picked it up and then he offered my money for the ball, I said no, but he Insisted that I get money for it, then the guy handed me $6. That was the only ball I would get during BP.

Look at that crowd during the latter stages of BP, it would have been great if the Diamondbacks hit alot of homers.
After BP, my cousin Josh took a picture of me with Pirates catcher, Chris Synder.
After that, me and Josh met up with my uncle John, my other cousin Paige, my uncle's friend Matt and his two kids. They went over to their seats in Section 123, and I stayed out near the bleachers the whole time and got something to eat.
In the 5th inning, I caught Andrew McCutchen's warm-up ball for my second ball of the day.
Then in the 7th inning, Josh caught Andrew McCutchen's warm-up ball for his fourth of the day.
Then after that, we went over to Section 123 to meet up with my uncle and everyone else.
This was the view...
