Graphing Recap of Somerset Patriots at High Point Rockers
We saw them take on the Somerset Patriots, and I spent a good amount of time a few days prior by looking for cards of guys who we would see. I did pretty well, and Chris even helped me search my Orioles boxes for the above 2015 Topps Update Chrome sparkle Jimmy Paredes. I knew I had the card, and when I saw he was on the roster, that was the one card that I wanted to get signed.
You have to pick a side at their stadium and go for one team at a time, so I made sure I hit Somerset first so I could get the Paredes done.
Luckily, I got most of the Somerset guys I needed, save for two, so I was hoping I would knock off the final two, then head to the Rockers side and grab some as well. I saw that this idea wasn't going to work, but Chris spoke up and said he would go over to the Rockers side and try to get whatever he could done. I didn't have his book along with us, so I had to hand him the individual players and tell him the numbers to remember.
The only problem I saw with the independent teams was that neither team had an updated roster posted that I was able to find online. There were a few pitchers who were listed on each roster that I wanted to get, but they weren't there. I don't know if there is a better way for me to figure out the rosters, but that would be nice.
Chris gets back from camp today; the week without him has been no fun, so he needs to get home.
