Welcome to the All-Star Fancast
Hello world, but more importantly, hello sports fans.
I have to say that it?s been a little bizarre to be walking around the floors of FanFest with a video camera on my hat. Since the front page story in the San Francisco Chronicle, I?m getting recognized all the time.
So why am I doing this? Because I love the game of baseball. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and it has been incredible so far. I?ve spent the last couple of days at All-Star FanFest, and it?s been awesome. Some highlights have included a brush with one of my all-time favorite ballplayers, Will ?The Thrill? Clark, making contact with a 120-mph fastball, seeing one of Babe Ruth?s first game-used bats, watching baseballs being stitched, and learning about the greatest game from the legends who played it. It?s also been a blast meeting so many hardcore baseball fans, young and old, under one roof. Unforgettable!
And it has truly been an honor to serve as the eyes and ears of fans who cannot be here to attend the festivities in San Francisco. MLB.com is licensing this opportunity exclusively to SportsJunkie.tv and providing me access, thus becoming the first-ever experiment of its kind in sports. We are on the cutting edge of something that could become big in the days ahead, so make sure you watch my view regularly, and get a free account so you can also chat during the fancast.
Today, my hilarious and very cute new friend, Judy Otto-matic, and I will be checking out the XM Satellite Radio Futures Game and the Taco Bell Legends & Celebrities Softball Game at AT&T Park. And later tonight, I hear that MLB.com is throwing a heckuva party. I?ll see if they?ll let me in. And of course, I can?t wait for the State Farm Home Run Derby (wish Bonds was participating) on Monday and the All?Star Game itself on Tuesday.
Please join me on the rest of my journey and let?s see what lies ahead. www.sportsjunkie.tv
