THE BRONX - Bronx vendors began to gear up Thursday for the All-Star game - and all the fans and the craziness that it brings.

Stores near Yankee Stadium have placed their orders for more merchandise in preparation for the thousands of fans that will visit the area next week.

"We're bringing in 1,000 shirts and hats - everything for adults and kids. I hope the shipment comes today," says Deborah Eversley, a local vendor.

Other vendors say they will carry more of everything from hats to flags to bobbleheads. Business owners say baseball fans won't be disappointed.
