Baseball life doesn't just happened on the field. A big part of the season for players during the season is traveling, going from hotel to hotel, making friends, hanging out and amusing yourself between baseball obligations.
It's no secret that baseball players love video games. Especially the youngsters, like 23-year-old Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Joc Pederson, who used his Thursday afternoon to congregate with gamers at the giant E3 Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center. One of the biggest attractions at the biggest video-game event of the season was "Call of Duty: Black Ops III," the latest game in the uber-popular series that will hit stores this fall.
