'Around the Mound' Around Town

Orlando Hudson is spending time with inner-city kids in ten cities across the country as part of his "Around the Mound" tour, meeting about 150 kids per stop. That's 1,500 kids over the course of a season (KpS). Good job, O-Dog. And sometimes he brings along special guests, this time at Van Ness Park:

O-Dog, the Kid, Beast Mode.

"Everyone will get a chance to participate! Except you, in the Giants uniform!"

Things that make Juan Pierre smile: getting beaned in the back, cute kids.

Is that last picture skewed, or is Juan Pierre's head really shaped like a bullet?

Maybe we could call him the Rocketeer.

O-dog is the man.

That's not a smile. That's just some ranch dressing on his lips after eating a salad.
