Naturals Night

What a fun evening last night!  It was my first game of the season, and it was just about perfect.  The weather was a nice 80 degrees, and a couple of big time prospects were on the hill.  Some highlights of the evening.

- The guy from Jag was in town promoting his new movie, and threw the first pitch.  I don't remember his name or the movie, and didn't take his picture.  But not a bad celebrity to throw out the first pitch at a AA game.
- John Lamb and Casey Kelly were on the hill for the Nats and the San Antonio Missions (San Diego's AA team).  Prospectors and Red Sox fans probably recognize Casey Kelly's name.  He was the central piece to the Adrian Gonzalez trade.  Both looked pretty good early, but both started struggling after a while. 
- I was thrilled to be able to once again partake in Funnel Dogs.  Yes, it's a hot dog wrapped in funnel cake.  Yes, it's delicious.
- Wil Myers (Baseball American Top 100 prospect)  is young (20) and pretty skinny.  But he hits the ball... hard. At least he did his first at bat.  Then he walked and struck out and I don't remember what he did his fourth time up.  These pics are with my camera phone, and it stinks.

- Christian Colon, the Royals #1 pick last year had some nice hits as well, and few nice plays at short.  I wouldn't be shocked if he is called up late this year. 
- The Missions left fielder, Jaff Decker, was throwing lasers out of left field all night.  He is listed as one of the Padres top prospects.
- Last, but certainly not least, SHE was at the game:

That's right, Miss Arkansas, and runner-up Miss America, Alyse Eady was at the game.  I got a big old crush on Alyse, and my wife doesn't even care.  Not only is she ultra hot, almost on par with my lovely wife, this is what she did for her talent show at the Miss USA pageant:

That is seriously the most awesome thing a Miss USA contestant could possibly do, and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise.

Jag guy, MLB prospects, funnel dogs and Miss Arkansas.  What a night!
