I wanted to write a quick post wishing everyone a happy mother's day. Today is a very special day after all and all the amazing women out there who have cared for a child, human or otherwise, deserve a whole lot of love.
That being said, when I texted all of my mom friends today, much to my surprise, I received a bunch of "You too's!" This really got me thinking.
One of the coolest things about being a baseball fan is knowing your All-Star Game is light years better than any other sport’s…and that it matters. The National League has capitalized on three straight All-Star victories.
I spent Tuesday at Citi Field, partly for the big Clayton Kershaw-Jon Niese matchup and also to do some advance work on the All-Star Week stuff that is coming there for this summer. Here is my ballot launch story on MLB.com and here is the 2013 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot sponsored by freecreditscore.com.
Just wanted to share some Instagrams I posted in the meantime, and making sure you are all set to blog like crazy now that the All-Star ballot is out. Make sure you leave comments here with your full URL and tell us to come and see how you use up those earliest votes, and we’ll promote some of them.

“I want to compliment you @channingtatum, you got a rockin bod in Magic Mike #winkyface”.
People tweeted back that they hoped I had gotten hacked. Someone told me I was weird. “You’re not wrong,’’ I tweeted back. Someone else wondered if Haylee had taken my phone and written it.

I wrote a letter to Punxsutawney Phil as an ode to the more than 1,000 groundskeepers who are preparing Spring Training and Major League Ballparks for us — and that’s not even counting all the Minor League parks! Do you know what their typical day is like? Did you know that groundskeeper was the first profession ever according to the Bible? Do you know how many members are on a typical grounds crew for Spring Training and the 30 Major League parks? Phil has been notified, that’s for sure. Bill Murray is even on our side, not his. Hope you enjoy #GroundsCrewDay now that we have taken over each February 2, and please spread the word by commenting on the story and reblogging this post! Also stop by and say hi to MLB head groundskeeping guru Murray Cook, who is about to celebrate the eighth birthday of one of our original 4 MLB.com Blogs created in April 2005. I owe Murray a huge thanks for all the info that went into our Grounds Crew Day story. – Mark
