It's another one of those days where former Iowa Cubs from my bat boy days comes into town on the visiting team. It's always good to see them and it makes me happy that I get a chance to catch up with them a little bit. The first former Iowa Cub that I saw this summer was Buck Coats with the Charlotte Knights (Chicago White Sox). This time around, Rich Hill and Eric Patterson both are in town with the Pawtucket Red Sox.
Rich Hill exchanges the lineup card with the umpires before the game.
Eric Patterson awaits for his turn to hit in the dugout during the first inning.
