Mason, Weber, Zanon Visit Oakland A\'s Fantasy Camp
From the Oakland A's Fantasy Camp Newsletter (Jan. 24, 2008)

Three members of the Nashville Predators exchanged their hockey sticks for baseball bats Wednesday afternoon at the Oakland A’sFantasy Camp.

Shea Weber, Greg Zanon and Chris Mason stepped to the plate after the morning games to take a few cuts against Dave Stewart and Mike Moore. Stew and Mike, of course, were the most effective pitching duo in the American League during the late 1980s.

The Predators are in town for an NHL contest with the Phoenix Coyotes.

The hockey players took several swings to get their timing down, but their basic athletic ability took over and they began to drive fastballs offered by both Mike and Stew. That all changed, of course, when the pitchers began hitting their spots and mixing in some breaking stuff.

“Whoa, what was that?” Mason asked as he swung helplessly at a Stewart forkball.

The Predators had the same reaction when Moore’s slider darted through the strike zone, or when the bottom dropped out of his curve ball.

The three went away with bats signed by Mike, Stew and Hendu (former A's outfielder Dave Henderson), and some indelible memories. And nobody was called for icing.
