Superb MLB All-Star Players

It is time to talk baseball as Spring Training is upon us. Today’s theme: The Midsummer Classic. There is nothing more thrilling than a mid-season All-Star game to get the blood circulating. Over time, there have been some awesome performances. Here are some of the ones that are standouts in our opinion

#3 – Pedro Martinez (1999)

Martinez was at the apex of his pitching prowess. In the All-Star game, Martinez pitched two innings, gave up zero runs, and struck out 5 of the 6 batters he faced. Talk about dominant! The batters were no slouches either. The line-up included Barry Larkin, Sammy Sosa, Larry Walker, Jeff Bagwell, and Mark McGwire. With a mix of 90 mile per hour fastballs and 80 mile an hour change-ups, the batters were kept guessing. What was better was that Martinez played the game in front of his home team crowd, Boston.

#2 – Bo Jackson (1989)

Ten years earlier, Bo Jackson stole the show at the All-Star game. His final stat line was 2 for 4 with a homer, 2 runs batted in (RBIs), 1 run, and 1 stolen base. Talk about packing the stat sheet. His home run was not weak either. It went an incredible 448 feet. What couldn’t Bo Jackson do?

#1 – Ted Williams (1946)

Ted Williams is arguably one of the best hitters all-time. And in the 1946 All-Star game, Williams proved it once more. He went 4 for 4 with 2 home runs. Add on 5 RBIs, 1 walk, and 4 runs, and Williams was purely sensational. The AL smashed the NL on this day 12-0. Williams really did earn the nickname “Splendid Splinter” on this day.
