IT’S HERE YOU GUYS! The MLB All-Star Game!

I know, some of you may not be as thrilled as me, but since the winner of the game (American League vs National League) gets home field advantage in the World Series, you know I’m praying, wishing and hoping the Astros will be there! THIS IS A BIG DEAL!

Not to mention it’s so much fun! I went in 2011 in Arizona…

And in 2012 in Kansas City…

I mean, how can you not have fun?! All of baseball’s biggest stars are there and boy do they put on a show.

This year’s All-Star game and festivities will be held at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, home of the Reds.

There will be events going on all weekend, but the good stuff doesn’t start until Sunday.

Sunday 7/12

This is a game played for players in the minor leagues. It allows the greatest prospects to show the world and their team what they’ve got! Some current MLBers who played in this game: Kris Bryant, Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Carlos Correa.

ALL-STAR GAME 

Like I said before, these teams have home field advantage in the World Series on the line aka they actually give a s*** if they win or not. Check out the starting lineups:

National League

If you don’t see your favorite player on there, there’s a chance he’s on the reserve list. 

There you have it! It’s time to kick back, grab a drink and enjoy some baseball. You know that’s what I’ll be doing!

P.S. GO AMERICAN LEAGUE!
