When I went to the stadium on Tuesday August 3rd, I found out that Kern Burns was throwing out the first pitch! I was telling ushers and fans about it. One usher I always talk to from the dugout section (me on the other side of the short wall) was saying “Tell J.D. (another usher), he was just telling me that he was watching his baseball films.” J.D. and I were both excited to see Ken Burns there.
Here is Ken Burns waiting to throw out the first pitch
Not a good picture of him throwing out the first pitch
Here he is posing with Brad Ausmus
OK, so I could not get a picture with him so I said goodbye to friends in the field level and headed to my seat but to my surprise, as I was waiting for the elevator in the club level I ran into him! I told him how much I love his baseball films and how I felt in love with Buck O’Neill because of him. He was very nice and thanked me.
Here are some more pictures from August 4, 2010 with Joe Torre that Lorena sent me.
Afterwards Torre noticed I did not have my on the field pass correctly displayed. He said “Here let me fix this for you before the picture…” or something like that.
Ok, is my pass OK now? OH, you can’t see it here.
