Today the Greensboro Grasshoppers split a doubleheader against the Kannapolis Intimidators. We’re getting closer to a playoff spot, but we’re not yet close enough. Bill on Baseball has a great recap explaining where we are and what we need to do: Hopper lead one race, trail another. In short, If we win the final two games of the season, we’re in. If we only win one of them, we’re in via wild card as long as Hickory stays on top.
I borrowed a telephoto lens from my friends Chris and Stacy for the game, and it’s addictive. I ended up taking over 300 high-quality pictures, and it is taking hours to get them downloaded from my camera to the computer. Since it’s 1:20AM as I write this and I need to play guitar at church tomorrow, I’m going to keep this short. Here’s one of my favorite pictures from the first game. It’s Kyle Winters warming up. Kyle was credited with the win for the first game.
Here’s another picture that I think came out well. It’s Mark Canha on deck.
I’ve got loads more pictures. Once I sort them out and throw away the ones that just came out bad, I’ll post more.
There was a good showing of Greensboro fans at the game. I’m going back for tomorrow’s game. The announcer said there will be a team autograph session before the game, so I hope to get most of my Kannapolis cards signed.
