2012 videos

Here are the videos of my hijinks of the two TV games for Team Stargell at the 2012 Pittsburgh Pirates Fantasy Camp. Thanks to Joe B. and his staff with the Pirates for sending me these videos.

Here is the video from Game 2:

And here is the video from Game 7 at McKechnie Field:

The game 7 video contains a clip of me trying to turn a double play that was included on the camp highlights DVD (unfortunately the ball was not hit hard enough to turn two). So while on the surface it is not as exciting as "The Catch" from last year, I think it shows some improvement in my fielding.

Only 194 days until the 2013 Pirates Fantasy Camp...

2012 Fantasy Camp DVD insert

Well, the Bucco bats have come to life in the past month or so, and they are in first place at the All-Star break. That hasn't happened in a while.

Just like last year, I made a DVD insert to jazz up the style of the 2012 Fantasy Camp DVDs. If you would like, you can download them from these links, depending on which flavor of word processing app you use:

Microsoft Word 3.x

As with last year's insert, to print these out, you will most likely need to use legal paper, as the width of the insert is almost the size of a standard piece of letter paper, and most printers cannot print that close to the edge of the paper. Also, I would recommend using a paper cutter instead of scissors to trim it down, it makes much nicer edges. The printed page is designed for you to trim away some of the printed part, so do not trim right along the printed edge, go a little bit inside for starters.
