Aberdeen IronBirds vs Tri-City ValleyCats – August 8, 2015

I was able to see an Aberdeen IronBirds game for the first time in 4 years.  It’s a very nice stadium and since they were having fireworks, the game was a sellout.

I was able to get two autographs at the game from Aberdeen LF Randolph Gassaway and Tri-City P Austin Nicely.  I was surprised that there weren’t as many autograph seekers at this game as I normally see.  But at the lower levels, there aren’t as many since the players are generally more unproven.

The game was pretty good as Tri-City P Trent Thornton went 5 innings without giving up any walks or earned runs.  Tri-City 1B Pat Porter and 2B Brooks Marlow added home runs as the ValleyCats won 5-1.  I did see 2015 Orioles first round pick (25th overall) D. J. Stewart in this game going 2-4 with a double.
