SnakeTweets: FanFest edition

New #Dbacks Dynamic Duo @Mtrumbo44 and Paul Goldschmidt mobbed here by huge turnout at Fan Fest!! - @BertDbacks, via Twitter

I wasn't able to get to FanFest this year, since I was working. But turns out, the Twitter provided a perfectly acceptable way to experience the event vicariously...

Yep, I was right about the queues: apparently the first person got there at 4:20 am.

It was all too much for some

The prize acquisition of the day.

Unsurprising line is unsurprising

But others felt... Not-so wanted!

Not just the fans taking pictures

Paul Goldschmidt took over the D-backs Twitter account for a bit...

...but seemed to get the hang of it pretty quickly...

...before turning the account over to the veteran presence of Brandon McCarthy

Clubhouse tours revealed player's personalities

And a record crowd was there for it all

Now: when's the first game?
