My dad had some free tickets to the All Star Fan Fest in St.Louis so we headed down there last night to check it out. They had a lot of collectibles and displays of jerseys, trophies, tickets, photos, and other baseball memorabilia. There were players signing autographs and booths were you could make your own baseball card or pose with life size cutouts of the Cardinals players. There were also batting cages, video games, and many other interactive exhibits. It wasn’t terribly crowded, but the lines for most of the activities were a bit long.
Unfortunately I didn’t get to bring this Corvette home as a souvenir.
We also check out the world’s largest baseball which is signed by all the players.
Overall it was a neat thing to see (alhtough not worth the $30 they were selling the Fan Fest tickets for) and it’s fun to have the All Star Game happening at Busch Stadium. Unfortunately, I will have some nasty traffic to deal with tonight while trying to get home especially with the President in town too. It should be a good game though.
