Eastern League All-Stars

This afternoon we drove from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Reading, Pennsylvania. In the evening, in Reading, we attended the 2012 Eastern League All-Star Game. The ballgame featured the best players from each team in the class AA Eastern League. The game was played at FirstEnergy Stadium in Reading, Pennsylvania, which is the home field of the Eastern League’s Reading Phillies.

I’d never attended a minor league All-Star game, so I was looking forward to the experience. I was not let down. In a thrilling ballgame, the East division defeated the West division, 5-4. Box Score

Reading is an excellent place to watch a ballgame. The wide variety of concessions is unmatched by any ballpark that I know of, and the stadium is a nice blend of old and new. I’ve attended two games in Reading, one in 2009 and one in 2012, and I’d definitely attend another game here if I’m ever in this area again.
