By | 3 Comments

Back in January, we shared with you a video introducing Minor League Baseball's best (and possibly worst) idea ever: a <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2012/01/the-reading-phillies-will-entertain-possibly-kill-you-with-their-new-home-run-derby" target="_blank">Baseballtown All-Star Home Run Derby organized by the Reading Phillies</a> to include a points-based obstacle course in the outfield, a party for fans in the infield dirt while the home run derby was happening and a jazz musician squatting and playing rockin' acoustic guitar in front of home plate.

By | 13 Comments
