It’s been a hectic few days in Major League Baseball. We’ve had a Futures Game, full of the brightest prospects in baseball. We’ve had more than 600 amateur players hear their names get called in the draft, and their dreams get started. We had a Home Run Derby that featured one of the most exciting players in MLB history (Shohei Ohtani) and one of the best derby contestants in MLB history (Pete Alonso). We’ve had a celebrity game that had San Francisco Giants legend Hunter Pence in it.
And new it all gets capped off with the main event: the All-Star Game.
The Giants have three All-Stars this year, but shortstop Brandon Crawford is the only one who will be playing. Catcher Buster Posey sadly stayed in San Francisco to rehab an injury, and starting pitcher Kevin Gausman — who is from the Denver area and made the All-Star team for the first time — pitched on Sunday and thus cannot play.
He’s still there though, and in style.
Enjoy the action, everyone.
