On Tuesday July 15th, the 85th All-Star Game between the National League and the American League took place at the Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the final score was in favour of the American League 5 to 3.
This year´s All-Star game was mainly focusing on all American Derek Jeter who has been the face of baseball for close to two decades with his 5 World Series titles achievements.
“I’m not retiring at the end of the year, because I don’t think I can play — it’s just the time is right,” Jeter said. “So today, I was fortunate. I enjoy playing these All-Star Games and competing against the best, and today, I was fortunate to get a couple of hits. But I still feel as though I can play.” stated Jeter.
And let´s not forget American League All-Star Game MVP Mike Trout who had a major contribution to the game by adding a RBI triple in the first inning and a go-ahead double in the fifth. At just 22-year old Trout’s MVP performance was outstanding and he is likely to become the 40-year-old Yankees captain (Jeter) replacement as the next baseball’s signature star.
“Growing up, I was setting goals to myself that when I get, if I ever get the chance to get to the big leagues, that’s how I want to play,” Trout said of Jeter. “Just the way he carries himself on and off the field and how he respects the game.”
Here are a couple of quick videos on the Jeter and Trout baseball action on Tuesday evening:
It was a great summer evening at Target Field in Minneapolis as the game grew in action and the players delivered their best performances. For the first time, the Ted Williams Most Valuable Player Award presented by Chevrolet was given to Mike Trout, a really important milepost in Trout´s professional career.
“Chills, goosebumps, you name it,” Trout said after a 2-for-3 night in which he notched a double, triple, two RBIs and a run scored. “Everything was running through my body.”
The 85th edition also marked the first time in All-Star Game history no pitcher went more than one inning. The All-star game predictions were in favor of the American League at -106 over the the National League.
