UPDATE: We met reporter Willie Bans from MLB.com while we were having our own baseball cards made up (my name on the card: Pudge McBadknees, catcher #15) and he was kind enough to include us in his article:

Meanwhile, Jake, 8, and Zach, 5, posed in Yankees jerseys for photos to be placed on their own baseball cards.

Mine’s going on my desk,” Jake said.

Their father, Jason, also had a baseball card made for himself, and was also impressed by the amount of memorabilia at FanFest.

I don’t think they’re quite as into the historical stuff,” Jason said. “But there’s something for everybody, really.”
