While some baseball fans watched the Major League Baseball All-Star game on television last week, Joey Padgett took in the action live at Chase Field in Phoenix, Ariz.
Padgett, manager at Bonnie Plant Farm, attended the 2011 MLB All-Star game with friends he grew up with in Alabama.
The summer event has become a tradition for Padgett and his friends.
“They tried for a long time to get me to join them, but I never did,” he said. “About five years ago I started going with them, and have been going ever since.”
