You love baseball. You live baseball. You are baseball. And, right now, there's a baseball-shaped hole in your heart that can only be filled by right-behind-home-plate seats at the 2009 All-Star Game. Lamentably, those seats were snatched up by someone with a comparable love of baseball and a far speedier Internet connection. You could stay home and cry into your Molina jersey. Or, you could join other fans at Baseball Heaven on Laclede's Landing (North First Street and Lucas Avenue). From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday through Tuesday (July 11 through 14), celebrate America's pastime at this family-friendly street festival. You'll be treated to great live music (none other than Dr. Zhivegas, pictured, performs at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday) and fun activities; admission is free, with food and drink available for purchase. And when the fans come spilling out of Busch Stadium at game's end, you can say you, too, have spent the day in Baseball Heaven. Call 314-241-5875 or visit www.lacledeslanding.com for more information.
