Altoona Curve Game Recap

I lived in two different areas of Pennsylvania for about 12 years, living in the Altoona area for seven years. Unfortunately, the Altoona Curve didn’t move to the area until 2-3 years after I moved to Virginia.  So despite living in the Altoona area, this was my first visit to Blair County Ballpark. I got to the park early, after making the excellent decision to pick up a jacket from the local mall.  When I left...

Zack Dodson Spring Training Videos

Here are some videos I took of Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Zack Dodson during an inter-squad game in Spring Training.  Dodson was pitching opposite Zach Von Rosenberg, and facing a lineup that was mostly made up of players in high-A and AA for the Pirates.  Dodson had some control problems, but considering that it was Spring Training, and against players at a higher level, I’m not going to make much of it.  He has...
