4/2 Snow day

It was snowing before the first pitch Monday at PNC Park and Jeff Samardzija went out to peek at the conditions before his first Opening Day start. He joked that it reminded him of one of his high school games when he was pitching for Valparaiso vs. Michigan City. On Monday, the snow cleared, the sun came out, and Samardzija and the Cubs won, 3-1.

“What a beautiful day to play baseball,” Samardzija said.

Several of the Cubs’ Latin players, some who have never seen snow, ran out to the field to take pictures before the game. They won’t have to deal with snow on Wednesday but it will be cold in Pittsburgh, with temps expected in the 30s for the night game at PNC Park. Bundle up.

Peek, not peak. You’re welcome (and embarrassed, I’m sure).

Not to be one to correct grammar, but it frustrates me when I see errors in PRINT – “some who” should be “some of whom” have never seen snow. Ain’t it?
