MLBbros Contribute To American League All-Star Win

MLBbros Contribute To American League All-Star Win

The MLBbro’s on the American League All-Star team got the offense going early as they held on to win 5-2 in one of the most anticipated Mid Summer Classics in league history.

Major League Baseball has the greatest All-Star Game in all of sports and this year the legacy of Hank Aaron was front and center.

The game began with a tribute video for the late 25 time All-Star and former Home Run King “Hammerin” Hank Aaron.  His wife, Mrs. Billye Aaron was escorted to home plate by MLBbro and Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge along with Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman as she was given a jersey signed by each All-Star and a painting honoring his journey from Mobile, Alabama to the Hall of Fame.

Once the bro’s stepped into the batters box, they immediately got the scoring party started.  After Aaron Judge drew a walk and worked his way to third base, Blue Jays Marcus Semien legged out an infield single to put the American League up 1-0 in the Top of the second.

Judge also showed why he is one of the most underrated defensive players in the Majors when he chased down a fly ball and made a catch at the wall.

A few innings later CM Storm Cedric Mullins came up to bat and hit a ground ball up the middle.  The shortstop misplayed it and was not able to make a throw so it was ruled an error, but I do not think the scorers in Colorado know the pure speed of Mullins: there was no way he was going to be thrown out.

Regardless, he would later come around to score the game’s 4th run on an RBI Groundout by the games MVP Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Met’s Taijuan Walker made his first appearance as an All-Star in the sixth inning where he struck out a batter and allowed a home run.

White Sox Tim Anderson got a de facto off night as he entered the game in the Bottom of the 8th and did not record an at bat.

On the managerial side of things, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts lost his fourth consecutive All-Star Game as National League manager, the League in total has lost eight straight to the American League.

Roberts named Hall of Famer and former seven time All-Star Reggie Smith as honorary bench coach.

The culture of MLBbro Nation was definitely alive and well during All-Star Weekend in Denver.  From “The Kid” Ken Griffey Jr. handing out the home run derby chain to the custom Hank Aaron Cleats and #44 cut into the outfield grass.

We will be looking forward to the 2022 All-Star game which will be held in Los Angeles at Dodgers Stadium.
