Fun at the Ballpark

Here are some of this season’s hot promotional items and one of the delicacies you’ll find this summer at U.S. Cellular Field. What could be better than a Jose Abreu Rookie of the Year blanket and ribs in a batting helmet?

Quote of the Day

Robin on Brad Penny, who was a mentor to Carlos Rodon this spring. Both pitchers will start the season as teammates at Charlotte.

“He’s been through a lot of experiences, which is one of the reasons we brought him here. He’s been the phenom. He’s been hurt. He’s bounced back. He has a lot of knowledge that I think he can pass along, and Carlos was receptive enough to kind of pick guys’ brains and Brad was one of them. He got lucky that he got a guy a little long in the tooth to be here and pick his brain.”
