All Star Dreams

It’s a very rare occurance when you get to see the greatest pitcher of our generation throw the baseball to the greatest hitting catcher of all time. Possibly almost as rare as seeing Barry Bonds get a pitch to hit with a man on second and first base open. But that’s the kind of game you’ll get when you watch the All Star Game.

I loved watching this game as a kid, always rooting for the American League (who lost most years during that stretch). I know the game doesn’t have the same luster that it once had, but it’s still a blast to watch. From the opening pitch with Muhammed Ali, to Roger Clemens getting the snot hit out of, and even to the Homerun Derby, which I view as more of gimmick then anything.

Ivan Rodriguez, one of the Tiger’s representatives, had a triple and single, driving in one and scoring once. Probably my biggest complaint of the game was Carlos Guillen didn’t get a chance to play.

And now the second half begins. For the first time in a long time, the Tigers are in the thick of things. I was surprised to hear with the Yankees coming into town, most of all four games have been sold out. Attendance usually rises during the Yankees games, but it’s been a while since a Tiger game sold out for no other reason then they’re playing good baseball and going up against one of the better teams.
