State Farm Go to Bat Challenge


If you're looking to kill time before the Home-Run Derby,here's how you can do so,raise money for charity and maybe score a pair of 2012 World Series tickets.通过在Go to Bat在线游戏中打出本垒打,you are entered to win a pair of World Series tix and your chosen charity has a chance to receive an $18,000 donation from State Farm.With the Dodgers' lead crumbling,perhaps the allure of a World Series isn't as irrational as it seemed about 7pm on Friday night![And amusingly,the PR guy who sent the email added a PS,"I voted for Aaron Hill.He got screwed"] See what kind of high-score you can get.

D-backs may consider offers for Upton


"If the Arizona Diamondbacks fall from contention.at that point,the D-backs would consider offers for right fielder Justin Upton,according to major-league sources."It's still very,very theoretical at this point,but we'll see if Kevin Towers is any more serious about dealing Upton this time,than he was before the 2011 season.
