Baseball’s Greatest Game Is Here
Say what you want about the World Series, I understand it is a spectacle to watch the 2 best teams go at it for up to 7 games to decide the Champ. But for me, the All-Star game is better. This is the day where loyalties go out the window and instead of a fan of a team, and you can be a fan of the game. Players you might not cheer for but really like, you get to root for.
Today decides which side gets home field advantage in the World Series and it looks to be a good game. In a repeat of last year, Chris Sale of the Red Sox will start the game against Max Scherzer.
The Line ups are:
1-Mookie Betts, Boston Red Sox, RF
2-Jose Altuve, Houston Astros, 2B
3-Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels, CF
4-J.D. Martinez, Boston Red Sox, DH
