A wonderful day with equally strong book sales, led by several Morehead players who had plenty of time to read the book on their four hour return trip from the tournament Sunday. Lots of folks mentioned to us that they had seen the Mike Max WCCO TV video segment that ran on July 4th. If you haven't seen it, watch it here: http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2016/07/04/todd-mueller-ballparks/
A strong showing here as well, as fans crowded into one of Minnesota's great amateur ballparks for the annual Orth Foundation for children with disabilities benefit game. Just moments after the National Anthem was sung, a Life Link helicopter landed on the outfield and dropped off the evening's celebrity—former Twins relief pitcher Juan "Señor Smoke" Derringer. Got my photo taken with Juan—does it get any better?
