Baseball is a funny game in a way. Not only is it a game with so many twist and turns throughout six month season, the game has a way of correcting itself. The 2004 All-Star Game was the first to the game actually “mean” something because it was played for home field advantage in the World Series. Fast forward to July 10, 2012 in the great city of Kansas City for the 83rd edition of the MLB All-Star game.
Starting pitching: Matt Cain (San Francisco Giants) vs. Justin Verlander (Detroit Tigers). Who opened the game with a bases clearly 3 RBI triple? Pablo Sandoval (San Francisco Giants), the recipient of the Arch Ward Ted Williams Trophy for All-Star Game most valuable player was Melky Cabrera (San Francisco Giants).
Commissioner Bud Selig got his wish: teams to play hard in a friendly July match in order to help them come October. Only time will tell if it will work out!
