    Any chance this game is being televised or streamed?  If not, will Pirates Prospects be getting any video?

      It’s not televised, as far as I know. No video, since we won’t have anyone there.

      I will be at the game tomorrow. I’ll be texting the play by play to someone who will not ba able to make it. I don’t twitt but I’m considering twitting the play by play so I can reach more interested fans. I guess I just need to figure out how to set it up.
