    1 hit batsman

    Luckily he is punting for us, not pitching.

    He's already doing better than most of the Astros starters.

    Schaub won the homerun derby.


    There was a bench clearing brawl when Chris Myers threw at JJ Watt's head.

    Just a bench clearing? The fans didn't yell obscenities at Myers?

    It was all in good fun and obviously staged.

    The event was top notch and JJ announced when it was over that they had raised over $300,000 for his foundation. Pretty awesome, especially when you think about how much fun was had while doing so.

    Some highlights (might not translate well, but seriously fun in person):

    During homerun competition, Schaub hit a pop up, JJ ran out and caught it, he then gave Schaub the :swatter:

    At JJ's turn Schaub went out to the outfield, JJ's ball went foul, Schaub retured the :swatter:. Schaub had a good catch during the game of a JJ long ball which resulted in another finger wag.

    Antonio goes out to bat empty handed. A little kid in a ninja costume presents a bat to him with a bow.

    JJ took the infield with a huge ass glove. Actually fielded 2 balls somehow with that monstrosity.

    A few plays at third base that looked more like tackles than tags.

    You forgot about Schaub's home run preventin', fence knockin' downin' catch.

    I did, that was hysterical. What else did I leave out? So many little things going on, it was fun watching the interaction between the players.

    Toro took over home plate umpire duties and batted once.

    JJ bribing the umpire when AJ got someone out (can't remember who the runner was!)

    Everytime TJ Yates came up to bat the played the umpa lumpa song from Willie Wonka. Does anyone know the story behind that?
