Alright, so rise and grind! Actually, there was no grinding. This has been the experience of a lifetime and an absolutely incredible thing to be a part of! Well it was time for day 2 and as promised, I'm here to keep you all updated with the happenings and the amazingness. Woke up, had breakfast and it was off to the top of the roof to get our information packets. Saw this awesome sign and my excitement level went through the roof!
The line to get our packets.
After getting all my stuff, I had to stop myself from running back to my room to check out all of my awesome swag! I had a packet that included my itinerary credential pass and some other things. They also gave all of us a back back with two awesome MLB Fan Cave shirts, a Fan Cave sweater and a super cool Fan Cave Cap. Can it get any better?
My super awesome Contestant Credential pass with my Name and team logo on it! Go Dodgers!
Now it was time to hop on board the Fan Cave bus and make our way to Chase field!
Chase Field! This would be our home for the next 10 hours.
We made our way up to the top deck in right field where we went through our orientation with some pretty big names in the MLB business side of things. Everyone was incredibly nice and I got to know them all.
Met my boy Ricardo Marquez (for those of you that aren't in the know, Ricardo was a Cave-Dweller last year and now works as an intern for MLB)
While half of the Fan Cave 30 did their interviews, the other half took a tour of Chase field. Although this was my second time touring Chase field, this time was totally different and a unique experience. There's no grass in the outfield!
Anyone want to go for a swim?
I should probably get some hacks in.
Next up was our pitches. Not the Baseball kind, this was me pitching myself to MLB execs on why I should be in the MLB Fan Cave. It was one of the more nerve-racking experiences in my life and tensions were running high in the waiting room. I didn't feel like it went too well.
This is the outfit I decided to go with to show off the best "me."
Afterwards, it was time to blow off some steam. We had an incredible dinner then it was time to play MLB trivia. This was my team. Guess who won. Did you guess my team? Well if you did, you're right! Because we won, we get to do a short interview with FOX tomorrow about the MLB Fan Cave. I'll update everyone when I get some more information but I'm pretty pumped!
Next up, it was time for a little Fan Cave Karaoke! We had a blast. I rocked the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" with my fellow contestant Angalena. At the end, we all sang "Sweet Home Alabama" and walked away a little bit closer than we were this morning.
Another absolutely incredible day. This was probably 5% of all the amazing things I got to experience today. Sorry the post is a little short-winded, I figured I'd stick to the basics. Tomorrow I get to go to Surprise, Arizona where the Royals and the Rangers have their spring training. I'm sure the MLB Fan Cave has some neats things in store for me so I'll be sure to update tomorrow night.
