On a day where temperatures reached 100 degrees, my brother and I felt every last one sitting in section 203 for the Yankee game on Wednesday afternoon. The bleacher creatures lacked their usual strength of numbers as the shadeless outfield stands were too much to handle for most on the hottest day of the year.
Equally as hot as the weather were the bats from both teams Wednesday afternoon. A grand total of 9 home runs were hit, and being in the left field stands I thought that each one hit our way was going to land in my hands. I could practically see the seams on the ball that Robinson Cano blasted just a few rows in front of us. Alas, my brother and I came home empty handed.
The next day, I listed a dozen or so signed baseballs from current and former Yankee players. Seeing the signatures of players like Brett Gardner and Ron Bloomberg was incredible in itself, and they are probably some of the most valuable baseballs I will ever hold. But they won’t compare to the home run ball I catch the next time I’m in the bleachers.
