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?
