Down at the ballpark early today...
Gotta interview Bisons Manager Torey Lovullo for this week's "Play Ball" column. He's doing his thing with Bisons play by play announcer Ben Wagner right now. Then I'm next.
Just so cool being down here at this time of day... the grounds crew and maintenance people are scrubbing and cleaning and getting the place ready; players jogging around the warning track or hitting balls in the batting cage. All is good... except?
Well, seems like a sewage pipe right behind the Bisons dugout busted last night. "Smelled like s**t the whole game", Torey groused. They were still pumping and disinfecting as I left the dugout.
I never take for granted how lucky I am to be able to do this job and experience the game from this perspective. Yeah..even the sewage part.
