yeah, Rose should have been there no doubt. MLB has to make some kind of exceptions when these types of events come along. the closing of the Vet is a one time thing and it would have been cool if the league would have aloud him to participate.

agree on the great moments (McGraw/Schmidt), that was great how Schmidt lifted Thome's arm up like that.

I've been to games at Camden Yards & foot ball games at Giant Stadium & Beaver Stadium, and it's just so much better.

And then when you add in the fact that they play on grass, is another huge plus.
exactly! I've been to Camden Yards a few times and it is awsome. I have also been to Shea Stadium when the Phillies were playing the Mets and even Shea was great compared to the Vet.
