I’ve been told many times that there’s no such thing as a stupid question other than one that is not asked, or something like that … I hope some kind soul here will pacify me and answer some of my … well … silly little questions … things I always wanted to know but was afraid to ask. And, maybe others have questions they were afraid to ask too!

Question #1. What exactly is a first base coach’s job? I know they pat a lot of butts and hold a lot of batting gloves and elbow protectors, but what does Sinatro actually do over there?

Question #2. Had some nice front row seats at Wrigley on the 18th right between home plate and the Cubs dugout and watched them beat the Pirates. Stuck around awhile afterwards since I just didn’t want to leave those seats (plus I like watching the groundskeepers fix up the field). Soon enough I spotted a few Pirates heading over to the Cubs dugout. They were sort of half out of their uniforms and didn’t appear to have showered yet. What were they going over there for? Do the Cubs have better digs than their visitors? Or maybe they were just going to hang out?

Question #3. While watching the Nationals games, I heard Len and Bob several times mention they took the Metra train after the games. That seemed odd to me. Wouldn’t they ride a team bus or something? Seemed odd that they were on their own.

These are the silly little things I like to know. I have more, but I’ll leave it at that for now. Thanks in advance to anyone who will spend time answering. :smile:The Flying Scotsman move
