Wrap Up

The All-Star game has always been one of my favorite times of the season; I enjoy the Home Run Derby regardless of who is participating. It’s always fun to see all the players standing on the baseline and having themselves introduced to the fans. The American League will be the home team as it will be played at the Mariners Park, so Gerrit Cole will be the pitcher to get things started tomorrow night. Cole is making his sixth all-star appearance; it will be his first-ever start. Zac Gallen is getting the start for the National League in his first career All-Star game. This game will be a lot of fun to watch with some of the game’s biggest names and stars on display; who do you think wins the game?
