Photos: Kinston Indians @ Lynchburg Hillcats 7/10/2008

Suddenly, we’re just lousy with photos around here. Which is awesome. Last night I went to a Carolina League game in Lynchburg, VA. It was between the Kinston Indians, who are affiliated with the Cleveland Indians, and the Lynchburg Hillcats, who are low-level Pittsburgh Pirates.

Originally, we thought we were going to a 7:05pm start, but then the previous day’s rainout was rescheduled and we had to scramble to make a 6:05 start. Everyone had to leave work early. Darn.

Anyway, here are some swell photos from the ballpark.

Indians Outfielder Cirilo Cumberbatch. Man, oh man, did we love saying that.


Dusk falls as the second half of the double-header commences.

We were unable to stay for both ends of the double-header. Even sitting for the first two innings of the second dip got me and my friends back to Charlottesville well after dark. But this was definitely one of the most fun evenings I ever spent at a ballpark.
