Around the Sphere at All-Star Week

First of all, please stop by and say hi to Roberto at Blogging Dodgers and Baseball. No matter which team is your favorite, you’ll appreciate this blog. Roberto has been at his MLBlog since August 2006, maybe him one of the longest-running MLBloggers among our many thousands of active MLBloggers in this community! Leave him some comment love and he might be able to give you some blogging tips as well. He has some skillz.

Welcome to all the new MLBloggers who came aboard during the Monster 2008 All-Star Game Final Vote process. That was a pretty unbelievable show of online force by everyone, and many of you started new free MLBlogs to talk about the balloting.

After writing about 10 Final Vote stories around the clock for MLB.com, I am personally psyched to see All-Star Week arrive, and especially one last one for Yankee Stadium. A wild scene here in NYC already has begun with DHL All-Star FanFest, and from the XM Futures Game to the assemblage of Hall of Famers to the State Farm Home Run Derby (short porch in right!) to the Red Carpet Parade that will attract one million spectators on Sixth Avenue to the Midsummer Classic itself…it is going to incredible. And I’m headed to Bon Jovi at Central Park Saturday night, looking forward to it as maybe the Concert of the Century featured monster-sized MLB signage right in the middle of the Great Lawn. If you love baseball (and you do), then you’ll be happy to know that baseball is the reason for this amazing concert and crowd. And our own Alyssa Milano and Joba Chamberlain will be hosting the main All-Star party of the week, Sunday night in Midtown.

I’ve already seen the statues.   🙂  Did you know you can bid on each of them at the MLB.com Auction?

If you’re a Yankees fan or have been to Yankee Stadium, then be sure to leave a comment with your favorite Yankee Stadium Memories on the new MLBlog. We created it for FanFest, so fans who come over to the MLB.com area there at Jacob Javits Center will be posting comments with their favorite stories from The House That Ruth Built. Add yours.

If you are blogging about the All-Star Game and festivities, be sure to leave a comment here to let everyone know. If you want more traffic, always remember to leave comments here and at other MLBlogs, and always include your URL as a breadcrumb to find you.
