So, I just got back from the awards dinner. Unfortunately, no Sheets announcement (as someone posited earlier) but some fun nonetheless.
There was a ventriloquist performing before the awards got handed out. Kinda lame at first, but then she got Jim Sundberg up on the stage and dressed him up as a baby and made him "sing" and dance. He swears payback.
Vernon Wells was there to present FOTF with the Marvin Miller award. Nice thing to do, even if he did say "and this year he won a Gold Glove - oh yeah, that was at shortstop".
The other really notable thing (this is for you, Micah!) was that Richard Durrett got up to intro Chris Davis for the Rookie of the Year award. He said that Chris asked him to be sure and let the ladies know he was the most eligible bachelor in the Texas Rangers organization. Then Chris got up and said that he "totally did not ask him to say that - even though it's true". Later, Eric Nadel said that he was glad Richard didn't say that Chris was the most eligible bachelor in the room because of course *that* is Evan Grant (also in attendance).
Also there was a "fashion show" where some kids modeled the new uniforms. They had some stuff for sale but I didn't really look that much because we'll be at FanFest tomorrow and we'll check out the Grand Slam gift shop then.
I'll have some pics up on my flickr page later tonight, though I think almost all of them came out terrible (haven't looked at them yet).
