Conrad Gregor’s first home run of season caught by his dad

Gregor’s first home run of the season went to right-center and landed in the hands of a delighted guy. Though few knew it at the time, Gregor said after the game that his dad, Marty Gregor, was the one who caught the ball. Gregor’s parents drove five hours from Indiana to watch their son play this weekend. Aw.

Nice advance Father’s Day present.

Hamm, Peterson on initial ASG softball rosters

If the MST3K Robots aren’t present, it’s not a real Minnesota Celebrity Softball Game…

On Thursday morning, MLB announced the first wave of participants for the July 13 game at Target Field. They include Jack Morris and Jim Thome; Minnesota pro sports stars Adrian Peterson of the Vikings, Zach Parise of the Wild, Kevin Love of the Wolves and Maya Moore of the Lynx; Jon Hamm from the hit TV show “Mad Men” and the baseball movie “Million Dollar Arm” that hits theaters starting Friday; and Minnesota residents and TV personalities Andrew Zimmern and James Denton.

These participants will take the field alongside additional stars from music, TV and sports, announced at a later date along with other baseball legends. The game will immediately follow the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game on that Sunday before the Midsummer Classic and will air on ESPN immediately following the Home Run Derby on Monday, July 14.
