Kenwo4life Where Were You?
I read yesterday that you were heading to the ballpark to sit in the last row of section 557, so I sent an intern up to find you in the first inning. He had tickets for the 10th row. Alas, he said he asked for you until he felt stupid but no one fessed up to being you. Sorry.

Prior to tonight’s game, Brian Anderson entertained a group from the Mercy Home for Boys. Sporting “Team Anderson” t-shirts, Brian met with the group, signed autographs and talked during BP. They will be sitting in center field during the game.
And Scott Linebrink entertained two Vietnam War veterans prior to the game as part of his “Scott’s Heroes” program.
