Annie Wersching: Oh my god! My cheeks are like being pulled up to the sky! *laughs* I’m so excited.
Ray Preston: How come? You just a huge baseball fan in general, or what?
Annie Wersching: HUGE baseball fan. I just can’t even believe that I’m involved with this somehow. You know, I’m from St. Louis – Vince Coleman just asked me if he could bat after me. I mean, what?! *laughs*
