Sights and Sounds: Game day

Today’s video is sort of self-explanatory. All pre-game footage shot in the concourse area, the stands, the player walkway and the field here at Peoria Stadium.
Down below was the scene not too long ago, with some of the spring high crowd of 11,454 at Peoria Stadium filing out to the parking lot followng a 9-4 victory by Seattle over the Colorado Rockies.

Mariners manager John McLaren liked what he saw out of Miguel Batista, who retired 11 in a row at one point and yielded just a pair of runs over five innings.
“I thought he threw the ball extremely well,” McLaren said. “Didn’t show any effects of his hurt hip or his hurt back or anything.”
McLaren added that he thought Batista looked like he was in mid-season form.
“I though he threw extremely hard today to tell you the truth,” McLaren said. “I thought it’s the hardest he’s thrown all spring.”
Listen to some of McLaren’s post-game audio in this clip.

Greg Norton had a big day at the plate, going 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored as the M’s ran the Rockies out of the game early.
Richie Sexson stroked a long double off the wall in right center. We need to see more of that out of him this year. You can see more of Sexson in the video, signing autographs pre-game. He actually stayed for quite some time and got a loud round of applause afterwards. No booing this time.
Cesar Jimenez closed out a perfect ninth, but I don’t think he makes the team this time around. Eric O’Flaherty is going to be the situational lefty for now, I’d be willing to wager. We’ll see how Arthur Rhodes throws in the next day or two after his fine performance the other day.
