A view from the Pirates Dugout
I love to go to the ballpark early. I love to watch the Pirates and the visiting team take batting pratice, grab something to eat and chat with the other season ticket holders around me, or other fans in general.
Yesterday I got a rather cool suprise. I was approached by one of the FSN camera guys. ”What’s your story?” Apparently, a few of them have noticed me all season long at the games by myself and wondered if I was dating a player. He said “I heard you were just a big baseball fan” I proceded to tell him my story. “No, not dating a player. I just really love baseball and enjoy being at the ballpark. I’m studying broadcasting and aspiring to be a sideline reporter.” We chatted a while. Very nice guy. Anyways, he took my camera down into the Pirates dugout and took a bunch of pictures for me. How sweet is that! I was so excited to share them with you guys.
Not technically in the dugout, but cool nonetheless.

This is an area where the Pirates can warm-up, hit, etc. before going on deck.
