"It was a blast," A's bat boy Jordan Iserson told the San Francisco Chronicle by phone Thursday. "Almost as good as the real thing."
The highlight of this week's action at the Coliseum was Pratt's reenactment of Scott Hatteberg's ninth-inning pinch-hit home run on Sept. 4, 2002.
'They said, 'No matter what, if it's in fair territory, act like it's a home run,' " Iserson told the Chron. "His first swing was a weak broken-bat groundball and everyone rushed out there like it went into the fifth row."
