Monday, April 19, 2010 At Bat 2010 iPhone app diary day 24 We Caught Our First Foul Ball

Posted by Drew Zeitlin.:

Hello everybody. It has been a wild and crazy weekend of baseball for abullrun. On Thursday we attended our first Major League baseball game in over 10 years. We had a lot of fun at the ball park that day. Unfortunately the Rockies lost that game 5-0. You can see a video of our trip to Coors Field on Jackie Robinson Day by clicking here. It is time to pick up the diary for the At Bat 2010 iPhone app once again. Today will be day 24. On this post we are going to talk about how we have expanded how we follow baseball outside of the At Bat 2010 iPhone app. On Saturday we were following the games on the iPhone and noticed that Ubaldo Jimenez was pitching for the Rockies. When he pitches the Rockies have a great chance of winning the game. After getting some other stuff done, we landed up watching the Rockies, Braves game with abullrun's dad. That was a good game to watch. Ubaldo Jimenez pitched the first no hit game in Rockies history. He was awesome! He threw a couple of pitches over 100 mph and in the 9th he had pitches clocked at 97 mph. His curve was so good that you could see it break on TV. Wow to see a no hitter is very rare and we got to see it in April and pitched by a Rockies pitcher.

You would think wow you can not top that. Some how we did. We topped it at a more personal level. Most likely you not going to see another no-hitter and we did not. Before our twelve year absences from the game we had watch a lot of baseball games at the major and minor league and had never caught a foul ball. Well that streak ended on Sunday. Co-founder of abullrun and all around good guy Keith Zeitlin and brother to this blog writer caught that foul ball that we have been looking for since the 70's. The foul ball was caught at Sky Sox Stadium in the second game of a double hitter between the Colorado Springs Sky Sox (AAA team of the Colorado Rockies) and Las Vegas. That is him in the picture at the top of this post and the photo was taken by our niece Brandi Zeitlin. We are having fun with baseball again.
