ON DECK: AMERICAN LEAGUE ALL-STAR PITCHER EDWIN
JACKSON VS. ARMY SPECIALIST IN KUWAIT IN ONLINE VIDEOGAME
SHOWDOWN OF PLAYSTATION3'S MLB O9: THE SHOW

Army Specialist Danielle Pisack (Selden, NY) was treated to a special affair at her home base in Camp Virginia, Kuwait, as she had the opportunity to meet All-Star Pitcher Edwin Jackson via webcam and battle the Detroit Tigers' starting pitcher in a friendly game of MLB 09: The Show. To add to the excitement, Pisack's family was flown in to St. Louis to watch her take on Jackson and to catch up with their daughter via webcam. The online showdown and family reunion took place at the PlayStation Patrol truck during the 2009 MLB All-Star FanFest in St. Louis yesterday, July 13.

Though Jackson is the All-Star of the event, he played second fiddle to Pisack , who although thousands of miles away, actually had the home field advantage with 20 members of the Missouri National Guard at the event cheering her on. Select members of the Missouri National Guard had the opportunity to battle it out with each other, as well as against FanFest attendees in a two-inning game of MLB 09 The Show for tickets to the Home Run Derby and the All-Star game. The top troop (Richy Kohler) also won an opportunity to go head-to-head with Jackson for bragging rights.

The event was sponsored by PlayStation in partnership with the Pro Vs. GIJoe organization. For more information on the Pro Vs. GIJoe organization, please log onto http://www.prosvsgijoes.org/.
