Joey Votto...Meet Keith Hernandez

At an early age, we're taught (while playing any game) to focus on what's going on in front of us.

But, when your name is "Joey Votto"...you probably don't need to listen to my advice.

Either way, I've gotta wonder how and why the brief encounter between the Cincinnati Reds superstar and New York Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez went down.

I'm not complaining.  I love the exchange.

It reminded me of, years ago, sitting just behind the visitor's on-deck circle at Milwaukee County Stadium and finding myself engaged in a brief chat session with then-Toronto Blue Jays star Joe Carter. 

But, and I'm completely serious here...why was Hernandez sitting so close to the field?
