This was my first experience attending the FanFest and it was a lot of fun. A part of me feels like I was walking through the Hall of Fame. There was a wealth of historical baseball artifacts chronicled as far back as the 1800’s. Each piece was as or more impressive than the last. I was inundated with baseball classics. As I walked through the isles in amazement, one item caught my eye in particular and left me in awe. There it was, a baseball signed by the sultan of swat himself, Babe Ruth.
A baseball signed by George Herman Ruth was and likely still is one of the most sought after items among sports memorabilia collectors. When I saw these, I was blown away! This was the first time I have ever seen a baseball signed by Babe Ruth in my entire life and to see four of them in a row, speechless!
Something else that caught my eye at this year’s Fan-Fest was this giant model of Angel Stadium made entirely of sand! The crafting here was quite intricate and detailed. It’s a very impressive piece of work. Seeing this thing in person is a whole other ball game! No pun intended. 😉
Who do you think will win the All-Star Game this year?

The AL will win the ASG. The AL is strong, while the NL is weak.
Haha! We’ll have to wait and see. Both teams have muscles. Did you watch the HR Derby? That David Ortiz is a solid hitter.
