61 photos from the 2013 Triple-A All-Star Game

Finally getting around to posting photos from the Triple-A All-Star game. Most have already made the rounds on the Aces Facebook so this is a slightly looser, more bloggy edit.

The International League, led by Tony Sanchez's second inning three-run home run, topped the Pacific Coast League 4-3. Sanchez earned the game's MVP award.

As for the experience—simply put—what a week. I had a great time: shot heavy, slept lightly and made as many memories as I did pictures.
