Thursday night the Knoxville Pediatric Cardiology's support group, Heart 2 Heart, sponsored an outing to the Smokies game. The Smokies played host to the Southern League North Division leaders, the Huntsville Stars. Before the game got started I was able to go on the field and ask third baseman Kris Bryant for a posed shot. He was generous and gracious.
This is Kris, just after signing some autographs for the fans.
He was rushing to get back to the dugout to watch Jamie Lynn Spears throw out the first pitch. She's the younger sister of Britney.
The Smokies fell to the Stars, 3-1. Kris Bryant went 1 for 3 with a double. Here's the Box Score.
So how did I get on the field for those early shots? I was granted a Media Pass, for which I'm very thankful.

The whole family, including my folks (who are in from Arizona), and minus my son (who is studying for college finals), enjoyed the game.
