I believe the two flyballs were on Patriots Day, a holiday in MA, the ballgame starts at 11AM, so people watching the ballgame can leave the park in time to catch most of the Boston Marathon. Other fielders had trouble because of the sun that day; early in the season, early in the day.

That's Manny. Just when you think you've seen everything. Remember the catch up against the wall? I was sure he broke bones. He uncurled, stood up and grinned. What can you do? Scream and cheer at the same time?
We'll keep him. I'd be interested to see him play first base in an exhibition game.
