It’s a family affair for Girardi

As one of the coaches for the AL team, Joe Girardi was at the press conference at the Grand Hyatt today. He had two of his children with him, 8-year-old Serena and 6-year-old Dante.

They held tape recorders and microphones for reporters as their dad answered questions and really enjoyed themselves. Dante – who will play in the majors some day, bank on it – told me that he thought Dan Uggla would win the Home Run Derby.

The MVP? “A-Rod or Hanley (Ramirez),” he said.

At the moment, Dante is in full uniform shagging flies during batting practice. He changes sides of the field depending whether a righty or lefty is up. His dad is running with him.
