The Big A

My friend Chris scored a couple tickets to today's Home Run Derby -- part of the Major League Baseball all-star game festivities -- down the road in Anaheim.  "The Big A" as the home of the Angels is known is a beautiful ballpark, and it was a lot of fun to see so many stars out on the field.  We got there early enough to see the all-stars take batting practice -- Ryan Howard, Albert Pujols, Ryan Braun, etc., while the pitchers played catch in the OF with their little kids running around...

The Derby itself was pretty entertaining, too.  I proudly wore my Brewer hat and Robin Yount t-shirt when Milwaukee's own Corey Hart dominated the first round but ran out of gas, and Big Papi, David Ortiz took the crown hitting some mammoth bombs.  Not a bad way to spend a Monday afternoon -- Thanks Chris!
