182 Packs of baseball - Day 166 - First Pitch?

Wow, this is the 3rd to last Monday of the season. It is so hard to believe we have come so far in our daily pack opening fiesta! I am looking forward to separating the cards, sorting them into the various picks and pans based on sign-ups.

I do need to ask if dayf also wanted me to include "Phillies" with his pony request, or was that straight up horses?  If memory serves, I've only come across one horse: the Rangers mascot.

None of this really has anything to do with tonight's pack that I know of. Then again, my random ramblings sometimes seem to have an effect on the cards in any given pack. Let's see how we do with 2006 Upper Deck First Pitch:

Angel Berroa - Royals
Alfonso Soriano - Rangers
David Wright - Mets - Goin Deep
Reggie Sanders - Cardinals
Brian Roberts - Orioles

Nope, no mojo magic there, though the Wright card is a very nice insert.  Did Berroa ever play for the Angels? Now, that would be cool - to play for the team for which you share a first name. Hmm, that would be a fun study: Players whose first name matched (or closely matched) the team for which they played: Jay, Ray, Angel, Astro... Well, maybe not him.

I thought I would try something different with the photo placement. Whatcha think?
