Bat Man Takes in a Bisons/PawSox Game

batbatcrowdDespite having gone to many baseball games I have never caught a foul ball. Not since a Little League game have I managed to snag one, I was close twice, but never close enough. I’ve certainly never been in a good enough spot to score a bat if one of the hitters accidentally let loose. I would be way WAY more psyched to get a bat than a ball. Plus, catching a bat is about 78% more bad-ass.

However, the Erie County Health Department is trying to find an as yet unknown fan who caught a live bat at a AAA game between the Buffalo Bisons and Pawtucket Red Sox. During Tuesday’s game the man reached out and snagged the nominally nocturnal creature, much to the chagrin of some health department employees who were also in the stands.

The brave fan released the bat after holding it for a brief time.

Evil Empire Invades the Paw Sox

This past Sunday at McCoy Stadium, home to the Pawtucket Red Sox an epic battle between good and evil was held. No, I don’t mean the game itself between the Paw Sox and Gwinnett Braves, it was the team’s first ever Star Wars Day!

On hand to throw the first pitch was Darth Vader himself, which doesn’t to me portend a good thing, but the Paw Sox went on to win a 1-0 squeaker so what do I know…

There’s plenty more in this flickr set, so check it out!

The first pitch wasn't a strike, but everyone left believing that it was
