Wow! What a fun and exciting evening I had last night when I had the privilege to attend the 80th All-Star Game at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Here’s a few pictures:
A mini-arch outside the stadium near where we stood in line (for half-an-hour) because of extra-tight security with President Obama’s visit.
The Clydesdale horses open up the festivities inside.
The American and National Leagues’ lineups.
President Obama–who threw the first pitch–shaking hands with fans later in the evening.
Oh, and by the way, I was one of the few to shake his hand. How exciting is that!
The President very graciously stopped on his way to the broadcast booth to shake hands with a few of us who were trying to catch a peek of him as he scurried by with this entourage. It was so generous of him to take the time from his schedule to greet us. That’s a homerun in my book.
I’ll share some more pics from the game tomorrow and highlights from the Robin Falls Kids Story Time radio program I was on this morning.
