Vampire Baseball: Maggie’s Report

Our favorite blogger, Maggie (who was on the set of Twilight), took part in the Vampire Baseball event in Portland yesterday. As usual Maggie’s blog makes you feel like you were there, and she’s promising pictures in the future.

“I was rather floored at how good they were. It wasn’t just connecting with the ball, they were hitting them way out, catching and throwing like pros… dang these people and their multiple talents!

The players were split into two teams: The Veggie Vampires Dances with Wolves (Peter’s team), and Portland Purple People Eaters (Rachelle’s team)…they came up with their own names. You’d have to ask them. The game was great. Everyone was having a good time, but obviously still competitive, and played wicked well. I was most impressed with Catherine Grimme… that girl is good!

There were lots of antics- a mock fight between the boys over a bad call, Rachelle replacing Peter with another pitcher as she didn’t like his throws- and some fun effects too. There was a bit in the second inning where Catherine[the six-year-old who played young Bella] took a hit and immediately was called ‘safe’, seemingly without running around the bases, so she looked like she had vampire speed! Really we filmed it the day before and Tyler sped it up with effects, but it looked great!”

Check out the rest of Maggie’s write up here! Kudos to all the stars and fansites who came out on July 4th to particpate in a fun event that helped to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation!

    that game sounds fun! does look like the little girl has vampire speed!! Who knows the may be real vampires. OMG that would be LEGANDARY!!!!

  3. It really sounded like a awesome way to spend the 4th and make time with your family too. everything is always so far away, i wish they could do something like that in each region but I suppose its not feasible, but I can still wish

  4. awesome cant wait to see pics

  5. I was at the game, it was SO much fun! Better than I had hoped and dreamed, the cast was fantastic with the fans. Lots of opportunities to take great pictures while they played. It is wonderful to see how much the cast gives back to the fans, Peter stayed until everyone in his line got an autograph and most let fans take pictures with them. It was the best day.

  6. i was at the game and it was great. i took pics and got autographs from everyone except Rachelle and Peter, b/c the line was too long. Not that they were not worth the wait, but it was a long day for everyone but they all were great and polite to each fan. there is not ONE fan that could have left there unsatisfied. i loved it and i love the cast even more for being there and giving back to the fans.
