Leaving my heart in Frisco
Texas, that is, site of the 2005 Texas League All-Star Game. We taped "Around the Minors," set to air on Tuesday, 2-3 p.m. ET from the FanFest the night before the TL’s midsummer classic. A good time was had by all, from kids getting balloon animals from guys on stilts, to everyone rubbing elbows with the stars of tomorrow being honored today (hey, that’s a catchy marketing slogan if ever I saw one).
Be sure to check out the show, and the site, for these interviews. I had a chance to chat with players Mike Napoli, Travis Hanson, Jason Hirsh and Jeremy Brown, as well as Texas League president Tom Kayser and Frisco’s president and GM Mike McCall. A bunch will be on the show, all will be on the site, so be sure to check out MiLB.com for all of our Texas League coverage. I’ll be back tomorrow with a report on the ballpark here in Frisco.
