Older Than Me…Still Making History

Diamondbacks vs Rockies Game 1

Rockies were tired and skipped batting practice today, the D-Backs were not. I managed to snag a ground rule double during BP off of Justin Upton. Normally those are difficult to grab ahold of when they bounce, but this one hit the wall, bounced off my arm and landed right by my feet…Sweet!

This is my portable “Bring Back Helmer” sign. No good TV oportunities to use it today.

For this game I was sitting front row in the pavilion so I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as I normally do. Today I was hoping for a chance to snag a live game home run ball.

As is always the case…It didn’t happen :(

When Jamie’s runn’n the show you know something cool is gonna transpire. Jamie gets his first RBI’s since June of 2004 and is now the oldest pitcher in MLB with an RBI.

 

Meet the Rockies new mascot “The Rally Squirrel”.

 I’m calling him Dante cause of his puffy cheeks.

Rockies strike first and get a much-needed win with a final score of6-1

Quote from Jamie post-game:

“Making quality pitches is the important thing for me,” Moyer said. “Tonight, I did a better job of it, but there’s still room for improvement.”  

I”m “D” The Ranter and I’m becoming a huge Jamie Moyer fan.

I had to sew ANOTHER jersey for Moyer today because every time he gets a win, the jersey goes to the Hall of Fame! That’s kinda cool to think I created something in the HOF! Anyway, great game – great win – yay Jamie! Hope to see you soon.

QUEEN GERI-How cool is that, I get to say I’m friends with the lady who sews jerseys for the Baseball HOF. Do you feel more pressure trying to get the letters straight when you know that’s jersey is headed for the HOF?? Just curious…D
