July 12, 2015 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

Before I get started, I wanted to say Thanks. Thanks to all of our readers for being patient with Jim and me over the last few days.  Jim’s work commitments had him extremely strapped and squeezed for time; and my only excuse?  Traveling to Altoona, PA Friday night to see the best Pirates prospect there is in RHP Tyler Glasnow, then quite possibly the greatest baseball game I’ve ever seen Saturday night inside PNC Park in Pittsburgh.  Unbelievable. If you were under a rock this weekend and didn’t get the chance to see, here’s the video game call from some of THE best in the business, Pirates announcer Greg Brown and Steve Blass. That game, moment and memory will give me chills for the rest of my life.  I definitely needed the 7-plus hour drive home yesterday to decompress.  Then, little did I know Pirate fans would be taken to the limit once again in a near impossible 6-5 come-from-behind walk-off win over the Cardinals Sunday night.  This time the heroics belonged to young RF Gregory Polanco and here’s another of Greg Brown’s call.

Un-damn-believable.  This is what’s so great about this game we love. It’s indescribable.
