From the actual game
to the Home Run Derby and everything else, this is a special event that has a little something for everybody, giving you plenty
of reasons to put down the remote and head out to see it all up close and personal. As an exhibition that gets all of the
players on the team onto the field, everyone gets a crack at making a name for himself by winning the MVP, which is why just
about anything can happen when these guys take to the field.
Even though the regular
season is obviously great, every fan needs to eventually get out to the All-Star Game to see this one sooner or later, as
the energy and excitement level of the entire city tends to be nothing short of unreal leading up to all the anticipated events.
When you get a chance to watch the best ballplayers in the world do their thing, you'll see why baseball is still tough to
beat, because baseball played at this level is simply something to behold. From clutch hits and spectacular defensive plays
to bench-gripping moments that you'll be talking about a long time after the final pitch, this is just one of those events
you don't want to miss if you love Major League Baseball.
Each summer, the best players in
the league convene in one place to battle each other in a game that has always been much loved by fans of all ages. Recent
MVP winners include superstars like Mariano Rivera, Brian McCann, Ichiro Suzuki and Carl Crawford, though you never know who
is going to emerge as the big hero. The entire All-Star week loaded with unbelievable events that are fun for the whole family,
giving you plenty of reasons to get out and watch some of the most explosive ballplayers in the world in a great celebration
of baseball that takes it to a completely different level. With the best from the A.L. taking on the top players from the
N.L., this is one of those games that is as wide open as it gets.
Did you know that the
only Bonds to win the All-Star Game MVP was Bobby?
Even though Barry would go on to win more than a handful of National
League MVPs, he never actually pulled it off during the All-Star Game, though his father did exactly that back in the early
1970s. Barry would, however, win the Home Run Derby, which he accomplished in dramatic fashion in Philly in 1996.
Over the years, players like Willie Mays, Bobby Bonds, Derek Jeter, Kirby Puckett, Cal Ripken, Bo Jackson and
more have won the MVP Award, and you never know who is going to burst onto the scene with a banner day that goes down in All-Star
Game history. This is a game in which just about anything can happen, mainly because the talent level is out of this world.
Over the years, the basic format has changed around a bit, though it still centers on having the American League square off
against the best from the National League. These days, it also counts for home-field advantage for the World Series, making
the stakes extremely high as these great players clash on the diamond.
The 2014 MLB All-Star
game will go down at Target Field in Minnesota, a state-of-the-art baseball stadium that is home to the Minnesota Twins. As
a great celebration of the National Pastime, the All-Star game has been capturing the imagination of fans all over the country
for decades, making it a must-see if you consider yourself a true baseball fan. Even though we all know it's great to get
out to spring training, regular season and playoff games, the All-Star Game has a different flavor than any of them, making
each and every one something special as the top players join with some of the most passionate fans for a unique celebration
of Major League Baseball. When the buzz of the crowd is rising and the most explosive players in the world are looking to
put on a show, you'll see there isn't another All-Star Game like this one.
