We had the chance to see the Baseball Project at the Storm King Art Center near Cornwall, NY this weekend. First off, the Storm King is worth visiting all by itself - beautiful outdoor museum with tons of large art creations - was very impressed and would like to go again. The afternoon/all ages show allowed us to bring our kids to their first concert. Both of them are huge Baseball Project fans and sing along to the songs in the car wherever we drive (good way to keep them from fighting!). Before the show started we had a nice opportunity to visit with all of the band members - they were super friendly and quite accomodating to the kids. I brought 2 vintage split fingers as gifts for the band they absolutely loved them. Soon after we left to find a spot to enjoy the show, Steve Wynn and Mike Mills, found a spot behind the stage to play some catch. I couldn't resist taking a picture, since it was especially cool to see a guy from my favorite band of all time playing catch with a vintage glove. The show was great and the band even mentioned both boys names after they played their favorite song for them. Really fun day and great band - definitely check them out if they are in your area. They mentioned they liked do these all ages shows the best as their fan base seems to be families - they hope to do more in the future. Thanks to William for the Huntington Base Ball Co. balls the kids got autographed - fun keepsake for the day.
