Baseball in 'Second Life'

An aerial view of the baseball stadium that was created in the virtual world "Second Life" for the simulcast of the home run derby from Major League Baseball's All-Star Game--and for future baseball events. The slugging contest took place Monday night, and the game itself is set for Tuesday evening. In the real world, both are taking place at Pittsburgh's PNC Park.
