Pittsburgh Pirates starter Jeff Karstens will pitch tonight for the Altoona Curve in a rehab start. The right hander will go three innings, or 45 pitches, as the Curve takes on Harrisburg.
We guess Karstens will then head to the roller coaster and torment the locals, ala Zombieland.
You think we’re kidding? This was from Cory Giger’s story today:
Jeff Karstens has pitched in Altoona before, as a minor leaguer for Trenton in 2005, and of course, he remembers the ballpark’s most recognizable feature.
“I remember the roller coaster in right field,” said the Pirates pitcher.
Be careful Altoona. You’ve been warned.
