I saw @ZFree1122 say that he got to play Moooooookie Bettttttts in HS, so I thought I would ask: Have you had any cool experiences like this?
1: I got 8 signatueres from Cubs players in 2016. That day, I got to be on the video board with David Ross.
This is why I hate the nets. I get that they are for safety, but not as many autographs, if any.
2: I was able to go the a Cubs game in the bleachers and a White Sox game in the bleachers. For the White Sox game, I was shoved to the side by college kids, otherwise I would have gotten a ball from MIKE TROUT. He tossed it my way, but I didn't get it.
For the Cubs game, I got yelled at by a worker at Wrigley because I accidentally dropped my glove in the basket.
3: I was able to see Jason Heyward's walk off grand slam. It was AWESOME! I was keeping a scorecard, and put a K next to his name, due to him being bad that season. I then erased it, wrote HR, and told the person next to me, who I didn't know: Grand Slam, right here. And then it happened. I ended up losing my voice before we left, and had a W flag as a cape on the train back.
Fun video about it.
4: In 2017, I went to the Cubs opening day, where they lost to the Cardinals on a walk off single. I then went to the Cubs home opener, where they showed the trophy, raised the flags, and for the first time ever: Had fireworks. lol Rizzo ended up walking it off against the Dodgers. Fun things that happened during that game: There was a two hour rain delay, so..... they played the game feed for game 6 of the 2016 NLCS, where we beat the Dodgers. Let me just say that the Dodgers dugout was not a fan of this. I also saw Tom Ricketts, the Cubs owner, and got an autograph from him.
5: My favorite player, as of last year (Probs not anymore) was Albert Almora Jr. I went to a Cubs game, and got to see him go 3-3 with a game winning home run, and a sac fly that I thought was going to be a grand slam. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEO36Ea-INY
This was one of the only good games he had. lol
6: When I was at a reds game, I went to the place where you can hit wiffleballs, and others field it. (The Cubs were losing bad, so I was looking to cure my depression) It is pouring rain, so they are about to close. I take my at-bat. I accidentally let go of the PLASTIC bat and it JUST MISSED hitting a kid. I then CRUSH an oppo-taco to right, and do a Bautista bat flip. I then went and robbed two home runs. LOL
What about you? I am excited to read some of these.
