Brewers @ Rockies Game 2
This day started out very early since it was my VIP experience for my article in the Rockies Magazine!
I showed up at Coors about 3:00 and met up with My dad EB and Rox Addict to tour and hang out with. We met up with Julian (assistant editor) who took us on our tour but told us his first task was to change out the line up for the day on the board out front at the Homeplate Gate. So we headed out and changed out the three players we took down Herrera, Colvin, and Francis and put up Rutledge, Pacheco and Chatwood! I was surprised how big the photos were but it was awesome being able to help out.
After changing the lineup we headed to take the tour. Unfortunately we all had been on a tour around the field and so not mush was new to us but it was very nice to be able to walk around with no one else there.
After the tour, we were allowed to go down behind homeplate and watch BP. The stipulations were that we could not holler at the players or ask for autographs but if they come over and are willing then we could. It was very hard but at the same time it was cool to watch BP from the other side of the cage and watch Rockpile Ranter and others go after baseballs. We did not get any graphs but did end up getting a ball from Jonathan Herrera who also hit one out during BP!
After BP was over I went to our spot on the wall and watched the Brewers take BP and hang out before the Rockies players came out to warm up. JP came out and signed my bat but that was the only graph that we got that day!
I did not stay the whole game because I was there so early and because I was with dad we left pretty early. This was one of the FEW games this season that I left early but I was wiped and ready to get to bed since it was only 2 games out of the 5 that I will be attending this weekend!
It was a very good game and it was nice to see some of the guys hit homeruns and get the team on top along with the much better pitching that has been taken place the last few days!
Eric was picked as the Twitter follower which was AWESOME because this was the third one of us that was picked to do this!!!
All I have to say is that the purple jerseys are working and if they have to win purple the rest of the season than so be it!!!!!
