Lots of changes at CoolRay Field.
Gone are the murals of Chipper and Bobby.
In their place: lots of Stripers stuff. And I mean lots. It's a good thing.
Special guest was Roquan Smith, the All American linebacker from UGA. Smith rocked a Masters shirt. He'd never been, but was eager to chat about it. Sweet chap, Roquan.
Behind Roquan's left shoulder in navy is Michael,
who I always see at bobblehead games. He liked my green Acuna jersey.
He also orders jerseys from the same place.
Spent a little time with my pals Johnny and Hugh.
Looks like a State Farm agent moved into the apartments next door.
Based on the monthly rent, they must be doing pretty good for themselves.
Top prospect Ronald Acuna collected a hit,
but later expressed frustration after three groundouts.
A good-looking Striper bobblehead. Sales are slow. Want one?
Several nice cars in the players parking lot. Also a few tractors.
Sunset over CoolRay.
Spent five minutes overlooking the bullpen. While we were there one of the pitchers tossed a ball to one of the boys.
Acuna's white shoes made his haunches look bigger.
Playing center, he misplayed a sinking line drive while trying to keep Matt Wisler's no-hitter intact. The single turned into a triple, and soon the scoreless tie was no more. Note the chalk sideline stripe from the Atlanta United's minor league team.
