Big League Stew - MLB

BLS contributor Nick Friedell attended Tuesday night's All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium, armed with only a camera and a dream. To capture the best the streets and stands of the Bronx had to offer. The picture above is of the Coke vendor (that's a capital 'C', folks ... fight those New York stereotypes, folks!) in his section in the upper deck. More photos and captions follow the jump.

To the best of my knowledge, these kids are now indentured servants on the Upper East Side.

Not everyone at the game was from New York.  Here are a few of the Midwest's finest. (Not pictured: 'Duk)

Visual proof of at least ONE Rays fans attending Tuesday night's game.

This guy was out on the street trying to sell an "autographed" Josh Hamilton picture. He said that Hamilton had signed it the other night at the Doubletree hotel. No word on if he sold the picture. But I asked how much he was looking for at one point, he said $50. After a few more minutes, it became $30

This photo is just a Create-a-Caption waiting to happen.

My seats weren't the best, but a ticket's a ticket. If you look closely, you can see that the ticket says "Watch on Fox," which seems a bit silly. How are you going to be watching on Fox if you're at the game?

The photo is a bit blurry, but the scoreboard says that Aramis Ramirez owns the Cubs' franchise record for home runs in a season with 38. Guess they forgot about Sammy Sosa's 66 in '98 ... or 64 in '01 ... or 63 in '99 or 50 in '00 or 49 in '02 ...

Not to mention Hack Wilson's 56 in 1930 ... Or Andre Dawson's 49 in '87 ... Or Dave Kingman's  48 in '79 ... Or Ernie Banks' 47 in '58 .... Or Derrek Lee's 46 in '05 ...

Do I need to go on?
