I'm a Red Sox fan. The two other gentleman I am with are Yankee fans. Over the years, we've adopted the Pirates as a mutually agreed upon second favored team. We usually stay in Bradenton where the Pirates play. Lecom Park is a beautiful place to watch a game and it's usually the one place we visit yearly.
Today was a great game V's the Twins. The Pirates came back from a 6-2 deficit to win a slugfest 11-8.

Today established a new personal best for autographs with 11 signatures between both teams. No All Stars, but still very cool. Here's the first signature on the ball, Twins backup catcher Mitch Garver.
Home Runs hit (5): Sano, Bell, Dozier, Osuna, Bostick
Amusing Moment: Late in the game, the Twin centerfielder and left fielder were named "Granite" and "Cave".
Answer to yesterday's game: Blue Jays Quality Control Coach (whatever that is) Mike Mordecai.
