MLB 2015 Game #8: American vs. National
Twenty five years ago, Wrigley Field was the host of the 1990 All-Star Game. While I wasn't able to attend the actual game, I did get to the workout day, old-timers game and home run derby. My favorite player, Ryne Sandberg, won the derby. Home run derby had a very different format than how it's played today. Eventually the rain fell on the All-Star Game and the American League won.
In 2003, the White Sox hosted the All-Star at U.S. Cellular Field. Again, I didn't attend the game, but we did get to FanFest at McCormick Place.
Today, I'll be on hand for the game in Cincinnati's Great American Ballpark.
Dallas Keuchel of the Houston Astros (11-4, 2.23 ERA) will start for the American League. Zack Greinke of the Los Angeles Dodgers (8-2, 1.39 ERA) will start for the National League.
