My Pictures from the All-Star Game

Pretty much sums up the night!

Pretty much sums up the night!

Here are some of my pictures from last week’s All-Star Game in Minneapolis. I had a blast attending my first Midsummer Classic… though I’d love to see a full (for real) game played with the starters, that would be intense! I was excited not only to see Derek Jeter’s final ASG, but catch some players that I haven’t seen in person like Yasiel Puig. He doesn’t bat flip after strikeouts!  Continue reading

Doing a slightly different version of this post today, as I want to share more information on my friend’s artwork that allowed me to go up to Minneapolis for the MLB All-Star Game… moments I’ll treasure for the rest of my life! He’s a Blue Jays fan though, in case you’re wondering! Anyways….  Continue reading

Bambi and me at Columbus’ Red, White, & Boom yesterday. Thanks America!

Happy Birthday America!!! Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays and I highly recommend heading to a ballpark to celebrate! In 2012 I was at Dodger Stadium on the 4th and it was quite the party… the post game fireworks on the field capped it off perfectly! I put some pictures of the patriotic affair below.

Where ever you’re celebrating, I hope you’re with friends and enjoying our day! Happy 4th of July!!

Ballpark Review: Busch Stadium Recap

The timing for this post works out pretty well, as yesterday was Father’s Day and I’m recapping a father-daughter trip I took with my Dad to St. Louis a couple of weeks ago.  I knew that I was going to go to the game on Memorial Day after the schedule came out, but my dad needed some convincing! Finally on Easter, I talked him into driving out with me on Sunday and coming back Monday after the game. You’d think it would be easy to get people, especially baseball fans to go to games with me, but it’s tough work! Continue reading
