Went to the Chiefs game tonight. They were playing first place Clinton Lumberjacks.
Rhee, in his second start since returning from the disabled list, worked the first three innings and allowed an unearned run on just one hit. He struck out three batters and walked two while throwing 46 pitches. He has really good stuff and wouldn't surprise me if we see this boy at Wrigley in the near future.
It was an exciting game, as Brandon Guyer hit two home runs, one of which was the game winner as a walk off in the bottom of the 9th after the game had been tied 5 to 5....
Now...for some other "notes".... I CAUGHT A FOUL BALL! Pretty awesome! Oh, it only gets better. I have a Ryne Sandberg Cubs Jersey, and my son has a Sandberg Chiefs jersey....and before the game, Ryne signed them both for us!!!!!! (Pix are uploading now, I will post some in a bit!) I told Ryne that my son was almost named Ryne, and he says "Almost?" and asked what it name was. I told him and then said that his dad is a Red Sox fan and wouldn't hear of it! He looked up and said "Red Sox?" I told him, no worries, he's a die hard Cub fan now!
I walked away, looked at my jersey...and realized I had just had a conversation with RYNE SANDBERG!!!! MY CHILDHOOD HERO!!!!
So, what a wonderful night! I got to talk to Ryno....got his autograph on my Sandberg Jersey..... caught a foul ball (one handed, I might add
) AND the Cubbies pulled it off!
