My son and I went to this one last night. Nik Turley looks like a pitcher. He didn’t light up the gun. But, he looked like he was pitching and not throwing – and you can live with that from a lefty. On the other side, Miguel Sano is a very, very, big young man. It’s not hard to see why the Twins are excited about him.
It was a last minute decision to see the game. And, we got there about ten minutes before the start of the National Anthem.
Typically, when I go to a game – whether it’s one of my son’s travel games, a minor league game, or, a big league game – I am in the ballpark around 45 minutes before the first pitch. (Sometimes it’s a half-hour, at the least, and, other times, it’s more than an hour before first pitch.)
To be candid, it just doesn’t feel “right” to me when I get there less than 20 minutes before the first pitch. It’s more than just a feeling of being rushed. More so, it’s like something’s missing. I need that period of settling into the scene before the start of the game. If there’s such a thing as “live baseball viewing foreplay,” I suppose that’s it. Anyone else have this feeling?
