Cesar Cedeno, Hank Aaron, and Billy Williams
The National League shut out the American League 8 - 0. So much for a pitchers duel.
A recap of the 2012 MLB All-Star game.
MVP: Melky Cabrera. He used to play for the Royal, so the Kansas City crowd loved to see Mr. Cabrera win the award.
BEST PITCH OF THE GAME: Justin Verlander striking out Joey Votto on a curve ball in the first inning. Mr. Votto started walking back to the dugout before the umpire even called it a strike.
ERROR OF THE GAME: Manager Tony La Russa being a Dickey and not starting R. A. Dickey. But in Mr. La Russa defense, he didn't get a DUI after the game like he did in Spring Training of '07.
PLAY OF THE GAME: Bryce Harper losing the ball in the lights. This will be the most frequently shown clip from the 2012 All-Star game because the media seems to focus on the negative. They won’t show him tagging up from 1st on a long fly ball to left, which was heads up baseball, they’ll show him making a mistake. But I’m sure Bryce Harper knows that haters comes with being in the spotlight.
SHORTEST GUY IN THE N.L. DUGOUT: Fox Reporter Ken Rosenthal. I want to say it was Jose Altuve but at 5’5 he towers over Mr. Rosenthal.
WHO’S THAT? Saw some people I didn’t know about. Jim Johnson from the Baltimore Orioles. I’m gonna keep my eye on that guy, I liked what I saw.
Also was that a Marilyn Monroe look-a-like behind the plate? I hope some rich fat cat hired an escort and made her dress like that, but there’s probably a more boring explanation.
COOLEST PLAYER: Come on, it’s Derek Jeter. Wherever he is, he’s the coolest person there.
BEST BASE HIT: Chipper Jones getting it done in his last All-Star appearance.
BEST GROUND OUT: Jose Altuve in the 8th inning. I knew an Astros would win an award.
Kind of a boring game, but still cool to see all those players on one field. Can't wait till next years All-Star game to see who gets snubbed.
The second half starts tomorrow. Good Luck!!!
