With the Mighty Yankees Waiting on Deck in New York
A-Gon Rushes to MLB Fan Cave to Hit Wiffle Balls
Adrian Gonzalez via MLB.com: "I try and get a little bit of time in here at the Cave. It's awesome. First time here, it's a lot of fun. Everybody that's here always has a good time...
"Things are getting better. My swing's feeling really good lately, and I'm just trying to continue going. It's a long season, and I'm just trying to finish the last two months on a high note...
"The people here, everything about it is great, and it was a lot of fun hitting those Wiffle balls on the street and hitting those ground balls to the fans so they were able to win a copy of MLB 12: The Show. It was great. They have plenty of games here, an arcade, fun things to do around here. And on top of it, you get to watch all the games. It's always great."

After a busy day of hitting Wiffle Balls, playing pool, MLB 12: The Show Home Run Derby (!), planking, etc., five hours after landing from Texas, Gonzalez ironically spoke about the importance of getting rest on the off day: "Late nights, try to rest, good thing is that we have an off day, so we have a day to rest."
