NEW YORK CITY--As you know, there was an elimination recently, and because of your efforts, I was lucky enough to stay in the Cave! It is definitely a different vibe now with only five Dwellers left, but it allows for more effective collaboration. I am really excited to see what we create as a group as the season goes on!

I have two main goals this week that I would like your help with:

#1: I would like to make a big voting push this week! As I've said before, the two biggest things that fans and friends can help with are fan voting and social media following. If you could, please share the voting link on your Facebook, Twitter, and email it to your address books, that would be a great help!

#2: Get as many views of my newest video as possible! I made a video about the unbelievable speed of a minor leaguer featuring the Cave Dwellers this week. I want to try and get a great deal of traction with it. Sharing this link on all of your social media accounts and leaving comments on the blog itself would be incredible.

Here's a quick rundown of who came to the Cave this week:

-Nas

-Lecrae (my favorite rapper!)

-DJ Official

-Street Symphony

-Young the Giant

-Dee Gordon (Los Angeles Dodgers)

-Jerry Hairston Jr. (Los Angeles Dodgers)

The Nas album release concert this week was the biggest concert in the history of the Fan Cave! He is from New York, and his fans definitely came out in droves to support. We were at max capacity inside, and there were several hundred people around the front doors and side windows. The success of this concert goes to further prove the viability and growing popularity of the Fan Cave, and it shows that we are reaching our goal of bringing baseball together with social media, pop culture, art, and music!

As always, feel free to follow me on Twitter and like my page on Facebook, and I'll keep doing my best to represent Oklahoma well while out in NYC!
