During the Cubs game on Sunday afternoon—the one where Jon Lester gave up 10 runs in the first inning—my brother and I started to play a game to pass the time. With the All-Star Game coming up, we tried to think of every memory we had of a specific event from All-Star Game history in our lifetime. Neither one of us could remember that many, but I did win the contest. So, here's every moment from an All-Star Game that I can remember.
2002: Bonds picks up Torii Hunter
2001: Tommy Lasorda falls over
1998: Bonds goes deep at Coors
1997: Larry Walker goes righty against Randy Johnson
1999: Pete Rose-Jim Gray interview
2015: Trout leads off the game with a homer
2016: Kris Bryant homers off Chris Sale
Baseball is here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test for the third year in a row. Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway.
Baseball is simply the best.
Can the playoffs get even better? Yes, if you play this game with us.
