Why the All Star Game is special to us. “The All-Star Game was the chance to get a glimpse of all the superstars in baseball one time a year. This was especially important for kids like me who grew up without cable. There was no internet in those days and our local paper only gave you the box scores of the Indians and Reds games. Guys like Paul Molitor or Bob Tewksbury were simply just names without a face to so many kids (not me) who grew up in my era. The All-Star Game was an opportunity to meet many of these players for the first time.” [7th Inning Stache]
