Some funny coverage of the fantasy camp from Bickley HERE. Sounds like Danny Boy came to camp a bit out of shape. Laughing

Matt Williams apparently made a kangaroo court session during the fantasy sessions:

Longtime Valley radio star Tim Hattrick, a veteran camper, has been the sitting judge at kangaroo court. He has brought great mirth and wit to the daily proceedings. But it's the last day of camp, and Hattrick is swinging for the fences.

He holds up a giant hypodermic needle and claims it was retrieved from the dugout used by Matt Williams' team. A hush falls over the room. He says that the HGH on the needle stands for Help Get Healthy. And he hands the needle to Williams.

"Just go ahead and put that in your back pocket, if you know what I mean," Williams says with a wink.

Anyone here ever do it? I think it'd be an amazing experience and am considering once I'm eligible. Minimum age is 30, right? Not too far off for me

For a second I thought you meant Help Get Healthy! Laughing

It really is a blast to do. You're be sore as hell by the end of the week, but it'll be worth it. Not sure what the cut off age is, but you should contact Jeff Swanson (jswanson@dbacks.com) and talk with him about it. I'm sure they make exceptions.

Let me know if I can help in any way.

Tell me more about the pinch runners. I can play a pretty decent first base, and I can still swing the bat and throw, but because of my knee replacement, I basically can't do much more than jog to first base....to try to run fast on it is too dangerous for me. Might break the damn thing.

Were the guys using pinch runners getting down to first themselves and then having someone come in to run for them once there?

Most use a runner when they got there, but others who didn't feel they could run were allowed runners out of the box. It's pretty laid back unless Chip Hale is involved.

Believe it or not, I was actually hoping it was Hugh Hefner's new twin girlfriends, not MN. I'd love to attend either camp.
