MLB All-Star FanFest a fun way to celebrate baseball

How exciting is it that the 2011 MLB All-Star Game is here in town?!

While I didn’t snag a ticket to the game, I did go to the All-Star FanFest at the Phoenix Convention Center. It’s a great way to get warmed up and excited for the star-studded game, as it features booths on baseball history, lots of interactive baseball-themed games, baseball player autograph sessions and baseball demonstrations.

When I went yesterday, I saw former Arizona Diamondbacks players David Dellucci

and Jay Bell signing balls, I saw a baseball being stitched, and I played a home run derby video game where you actually swung the controller to hit.

I also loved seeing all the old baseball jerseys and reading about women in baseball. Baseball is my favorite professional sport to follow, so if you’re a fan, the event is worth checking out.

You can still head down there today, tomorrow and Tuesday. Tickets are $30 for adults and may be purchased here.
