The tour was created to get more African-American youth interested in the sport of baseball. Hudson has gathered other African-American MLB players around the league, to help support his efforts and will visit the cities where games are played by the Los Angeles Dodgers, to speak to middle school, high school, RBI and little league baseball teams in urban areas.

Home again

In my third, and final, trip home to Wisconsin this season, I snapped a few more photos from Miller Park in Milwaukee.  Enjoy!

Here are the Redlegs stretching while the Brewers wrap up their batting practice.

Writers_MIL.JPG

From far to near, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com and Hal McCoy of the Dayton Daily News.  It’s a rare sight to see all three regular beat writers on the road these days.

Brewers team photo day.  The Reds’ team photo day will be on September 16, prior to that night’s game vs Houston.

MIL_fan.JPG

Seen here is a banner directing fans to report “fan misconduct” by simply texting.  It’s a new system they are testing right now.
