NEW YORK CITY--By now you know that no one was eliminated from the Fan Cave last week and that all of us are getting the opportunity to go to the Home Run Derby and All Star Game in Kansas City! Let me just take a second to thank you for your support for me throughout this Fan Cave competition. It has been a tremendous blessing for me to experience this, and your help has definitely sustained me throughout this entire process.
As great as it is that no one was eliminated, we have been informed that 2-3 of us will be eliminated upon our return from Kansas City. So, please keep up the voting, and ask your friends and family to do the same!
Here's a quick look at the people that came through the Cave this week:
-Pia Toscano (American Idol)
-Cliff Lee (Philadelphia Phillies)
-David Wright (New York Mets)
-Ricky Bottalico (Retired MLB player)
-Mike Zunino (Golden Spikes Award Winner)
-Matt Appel (Golden Spikes Award Finalist)
-Carlos Rodon (Golden Spikes Award Finalist)
-Anthony Rizzo (Chicago Cubs)
-Tony Campana (Chicago Cubs)
Thomas S. Ricketts (Chicago Cubs owner)
It was especially cool having Cliff Lee come by because he brought his family with him, to include his two young kids. It was a very private visit in that there were no cameras around and no one else was aware that he came by. His kids had such a great time that they came back two days later, which just so happened to be the same day Cliff got his first win of the season! FAN CAVE BUMP!
Below are the blogs that I put together for this week. Please post these to your social media accounts and leave a comment if you get a chance!

Throughout the All Star Game festivities, I will be taking video and pictures to chronicle my experience. Make sure to follow me on Twitter and like my fan page for all of the exclusive content! I will be sure to keep you updated!
Thanks for all of your support!
