Got lots of pics today, but bailed on the actual game. The coaches, broadcasters, and some of the players were really cool and actually shook hands and chatted with the fans. Davey was especially good at interacting with folks and posing for pics and signing autographs (despite the request for fans to not ask for autographs or individual pics). Some of the players (Zim, Desmond, Morse, and Werth) just walked around and waved, but most of the rest of them took their time and actually talked to the fans and shook hands. It was great of them to do this, especially on such a hot day.
Very surprising about Desmond (as opposed to Zimmm and Werth where this is right in character), Ian is in the running for the most fan friendly Nat since the team came to town. Livan and Morgan were known for being fan friendly, but Desmond signs autographs, throws balls to kids, visits sick kids, and even gives away prizes to his Twitter followers. Maybe he was just having a rough day knowing that he was backing out of the ASG.
