This latest Fan Shot comes from 12-year old daughter Haley Smilow who has been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to interview several Major League Baseball Players over the last couple of years. Her family began a quest in 2011 to visit all 30 ballparks and by the end of this summer they will have reached 22.
The following is a Q&A that Haley conducted with Mets utility infielder Justin Turner. I’m sure you’ll all agree she did a fantastic job. Enjoy…
HALEY: Do you have a favorite ballpark and why?
JUSTIN: My favorite place to play is probably Camden Yards. I came up there and the Baltimore Orioles were my first big league team so it was my home field. It is just beautiful park and the warehouse in left field is incredible.
HALEY: Who has the best Hot Dogs? Cincinnati Kahn’s Hot Dogs, Baltimore Esskay Hot Dog or New York Nathan’s Hot Dogs?
JUSTIN: I actually got to try a Nathan’s hot dog last year and it was pretty good. It lived up to the hype so I am going ...

My advice to Alderson this off-season? Ignore the voice...
