Opener in KC
Tuesday, July 8, 2008
OC, SS; AJ, C; Q, LF; Dye, RF; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Swish, CF; Crede, 3B; Ram, 2B. Contreras pitching.
Apparently a Kansas downpour at 2 pm flooded the visiting clubhouse, causing early arrivals among our players, including Ozzie Guillen, Jim Thome and Matt Thornton, to pitch in and help the clubhouse staff move sofas and chairs out of the flooding water. With the renovations to the ballpark currently underway, drainage can be an issue behind the scenes. Sounds like the ballgame will be fine, however.
