More McCann Pictures From Patrick Abbott

As I write this blog entry during my lunch break, the Greensboro Grasshoppers are battling the Rome Braves in the first of two 7-inning games scheduled for today. (It’s currently the top of the 8th, with the score tied at zero, so the first game of the double-header gets extra innings today….) Why a double-header? Because yesterday’s game was called on account of rain. So while the boys are playing today’s game, I’m happy to bring you a few pictures of Brian McCann from Friday’s game. The Hoppers fell to the Braves Friday night (box | recap), due in large part to an RBI double from Brian McCann in the 9th.

These pictures come courtesy, once again, of Patrick Abbott. Patrick was enjoying the game from Suite 210. Patrick reports that “McCann was very gracious when it came to autographs…. He even delivered a bunch of baseballs to fans eager to get an autograph or photo by the player entrance/exit immediately after the game.” Sounds like a great time, and I’m glad so many baseball fans in Greensboro got a chance to see a first-rate big-league player in our ballpark.
