More pictures from the All-Star FanFest.
Thank you National League players for coming thru and giving the Senior Circuit bragging right!
I could have used a real vacation day today of just resting after the last five hectic days but I had a great time,
Friday 7/9: Volunteer from noon to 5 p.m. Head to Dodger Stadium for game at 7:10 p.m.
Saturday 7/10: Photo Day at Dodger Stadium at 11:a.m. Game at 1:10 p.m. Steve Garvey Charity game at Pepperdine in Malibu at 5:30 p.m. (pictures another time).
Sunday 7/11: volunteer from 8:a.m. to 1 p.m. Head to Dodger Stadium for game at 5:10 p.m.
Monday 7/12: Leave house at 8:30 a.m. to attend FanFest as a FAN before shift. Realized when I got there that I forgot my camera. Make the one hour trip (one way) home to get camera. Got back at 11:30, time to report to work to start noon to 5:p.m. shift. Check out FanFest with friends and family AFTER 5 p.m.
Tuesday 7/13. Checkout FanFest (lots to see) then lineup outside of convention to wait for Player parade. After parade, realized I lost my car keys. Checked with security, information, front desk and no sign of keys. My friend Lorena came to pick me up to head to the game after she finished watching the parade from her end at Disneyland. Brother Vic timed it well to bring me the the extra key I had left at home.
Wednesday 7/14. Exhausted but back at work.
Here are some pictures:
In a prior post, I had mentioned that Red Sox Mickey was on the DL. He was brought back to FanFest after his trip to the mickey hospital. Note how Red Sox Mickey has his left arm all bandaged and he has a hot water bottle on top. Poor mickey.
Here is the news flash from MLB informing everyone that Red Sox Mickey was starting his rehab assignment at the FanFest on Friday and possibly would be ready for the All-Star game.
Unfortunately Kansas City Royals Mickey could not make it on time.
There was a wax figure of Tommy Lasorda. Have you ever seen him this skinny?
Outside of the convention center was the Hilton and the Marriott hotel. The Hilton has the American League Mickey
The Marriott has the The National League Mickey!
After our final volunteering assignment we were given an All-Star baseball. After three days I was really tired but I would do it again. I met lots of fans, little ones and big ones and many other baseball fans that volunteered.
There was a sheet to signup for the upcoming NBA All-Star FanFest in Los Angeles next year and we were told that starting in February we could sign up to volunteer for next year’s MLB All-Star FanFest in Arizona.
