Adventures in Spring Training Game #3: Tigers at Pirates

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

On Tuesday, it was raining over most of Florida. Lots of games got cancelled, but we took a chance and managed to score ticleats to the game in Bradenton. Because of the weather, we didn't get to Lecom Park in time to try for autographs. We did get great seats right by 3rd base.

Starting lineups

The Pirates won 3-1. I got to see two incredible plays:

In the first, the Tigers loaded the bases with just one out, but the Pirates pulled off an amazing double play:

I managed to get a pic just as the tag was applied:

Then in the 5th, I had a great view of Starling Matte as he stole 3rd base, then scored on an bad throw by the Tigers catcher. It was an exciting game!
