[tweetmeme source=”mirellamcc” only_single=false]I have to admit that I had no idea what my husband was talking about when he said: “I have tickets for tonight’s game to see Strasburg pitch.”

But when I was at the stadium I realized how lucky I was to attend this historical event and see the fastest pitcher in the world.  His pitches reached 100 mph at some point.

People were so excited to see him, they were standing and shouting every time he not only pitched, but also just appeared.  It was a Strasburg-mania!!!!

I took few pictures of him when he was warming up, pictures of the baseball cards we had the chance to get and pictures of the media correspondents on-air from the field.

Strasburg warming up before the game and people standing up to watch him.
