The #All Star Game…#Midsummer Classic! was last night….this is the baseball game that is played at the “Break” of the 162 game season and the team is put together with players from all the teams.
Sorry, folks…if sports is not your game, but I just wanted to give a quick comment on this night of legendary baseball.
Yes, I confess to being a sports fanatic! 😉
The Major League Baseball All-Star Game, also known as the “Midsummer Classic,” is an annual game between the best players from the American League and the National League. Since 2002, the winning side has secured home-field advantage for its team’s representative in the World Series.
It was a proud moment for them in front of thousands of fans cheering the memories of days gone by.
The game itself, ended as it should have (in my opinion), with the American League defeating the National League 6-3.
Yes, I am a bit biased….the American League team was coached/managed by none other than Ned Yost, Coach of the Kansas City Royals…and although many players from many teams played through-out the game….the starters included our very own center fielder, Lorenzo Cain, short stop, Alcides Escobar, catcher, Salvadore Perez and left fielder, Alex Gordon. Quite an honor to have four Royals among the nine players starting.
Allow me to quote from the Kansas City Star sports writer:
“With Lorenzo Cain leading the way, Royals players made a big impact on the All-Star Game and helped the AL secure home field advantage in the World Series”.
#Lets Go Royals!
After a few days of rest, the last half of the baseball season will start and the teams will begin their quest towards the World Series.
Until then…Good luck to the Boys in Blue…our Kansas City Royals!
Have a great day!
