If you allow yourself to be open to the struggles of humanity, it can sometimes be difficult to remain hopeful and positive. I try to educate myself on what is going on in the world. I try to remember that as I type away, in the comfort of my sitting room, with my A/C and chai latte, there are many things simultaneously occurring that are unfathomable and devastating. I try to remind myself daily of how blessed I am. I’m pretty good at remaining grateful. I can look at my family, friends and animals, and know that they are all a reflection of what is good in life.
It might seem weird that I’m starting a post about the All-Star Game with the above paragraph, but honestly, my experience at the All-Star Game always invokes a feeling of gratitude. It is a reminder that, not only am I blessed to be given the opportunities bestowed upon me, but also that I am blessed to have been born into this country.
Baseball is an escape for me. I get lost in it. Baseball is the coming together of unlike minds for a like purpose. Every moment before a pitch is thrown has its own pulse. Looking at a field and seeing all the greats in the game, in all their shapes and sizes–their different cultural backgrounds, history and cellular make up–is a reminder that anyone, from anywhere, can play the game of baseball. You don’t have to be seven feet tall or seven feet wide. It is the Everyman’s sport. Regardless of any controversy that surrounds baseball, this is what I think of when I look at all the greats on one field.
I had a beautiful time in St. Louis.
So thank you, St. Louis. Thank you, Busch Stadium. Thank you, MLB. Thank you, Ryan Howard. Thank you, G-iii Sports. Thank you, Aminco.
But most of all, thank you to those who came to meet me. I’m well aware that without your support not only of the clothing line, but also of me, none of these baseball experiences would be possible.
I am blessed. And I am grateful.
Four games against the Pirates, six against the Giants, and three against the Padres. That’s all that stands in the way of a trip back to the postseason, and everyone knows that all you have to do is be one of the eight these days and anything can happen. Obviously I am happy with a 4 1/2-game lead entering the Pirates series. Let’s take it one game at a time and GO BLUE! In the meantime, thanks for your continued comments and I wanted to pass along this press release for my upcoming appearance in St. Louis for TOUCH. I look forward to meeting more fans.
ALYSSA MILANO SHOWS OFF HIGH-END CARDINALS FASHION FOR WOMEN AT BUSCH STADIUM SEPT. 26
Sportservice, the Food and Retail Provider at Busch Stadium, Welcomes Actress and Fashion Designer Alyssa Milano for an Autograph Signing for her TOUCH Fashion Collection
ST. LOUIS (Sept. 12, 2008) – Cardinals fans purchasing their favorite team’s apparel will receive more for their money on Friday, Sept. 26. Thanks to the St. Louis Cardinals and Delaware North Companies Sportservice, the food service and retail provider at Busch Stadium, actress Alyssa Milano will be greeting Cardinals fans from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. for a promotional autograph signing of her TOUCH clothing line at the Official Cardinals Team Store.
“I created TOUCH for women who love sports as much as I do and want to be comfy, but still stylish, while cheering on their favorite team,” said Alyssa Milano. “Cardinals fans are known for their passion for their team, and I was inspired to create the TOUCH collection for exactly that kind of fan!”
Milano, a celebrated actress best known for her role on the hit television shows “Charmed” and “Who’s the Boss,” created the women’s fashion line TOUCH by Alyssa Milano to give female fans a chic option for sporting their team’s logo. Major League Baseball and G-III Sports partnered with Milano to bring the TOUCH collection to baseball stadiums across the country, including Busch Stadium and select retailers.
“The St. Louis Cardinals and Sportservice have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to providing St. Louis fans with the most innovative, fashion-forward apparel available. We’re proud to have been one of the front-runners in offering fans Alyssa’s wildly popular fashions,” said Loren Pawlitz, Sportservice retail manager at Busch Stadium. “Women appreciate the versatility of the TOUCH line because it’s both stylish and comfortable, and the pieces are hip enough to transition to post-game celebrations.”
Sportservice oversees all retail operations within Busch Stadium and was instrumental in bringing Milano to St. Louis for this event. Retail managers made the decision to carry Milano’s line in 2007, in response to fans’ needs. Milano’s TOUCH line is one of hundreds of retail options making the Official Cardinals Team Store one of the most diverse and authentic selections of Cardinals merchandise available.
“We’re thrilled to host Alyssa and are excited to see the fans’ reactions,” added Pawlitz. “Cardinals fans are some of the most passionate fans in the country, and we have no doubt they’ll convey this enthusiasm when they welcome Alyssa to St. Louis for this special event.”
