Erik Kratz catches up with a college buddy at Coors Field

It was a college reunion at Coors Field for for Erik Kratz, who caught up with Rockies fan Joel Ours on Sunday. Ours has known Kratz and his wife since they were students at Eastern Mennonite University in Virginia about a decade ago.

The jourmeyman catcher was recalled on June 26 to serve as the backup for All-Star backstop Carlos Ruiz after Brian Schneider was placed on the 15-day DL.

Nothing like some old college buddies meeting up at a Major League ballgame -- especially when one is playing.
