DETROIT - Ryan LaMarre's feet were perched on the railing in the visitor's dugout nearly three hours before game time.
Back in the clubhouse at Comerica Park, most of his Minnesota Twins teammates were being serenaded by Latin techno music. A few were playing cards. Others were taping up their wrists, ankles and the like.
But LaMarre was already dressed head-to-toe, looking out at the field and making sure that, this time, he took it all in.
He played at Comerica in a high school all-star game in 2007 and finished with multiple hits, but that's about the extent of what the Lumen Christi graduate recalled from the afternoon.
