It's been a tough season so far for the Red Sox, but last night in Minneapolis, their manager, John Farrell, guided the American League All Stars to a 5-3 victory over the National League.
And the biggest American League star was veteran Yankee shortstop, Derek Jeter, playing in his final season and in his last Midsummer Classic.
- "In the final act of his final All-Star Game, Derek Jeter did something that was quintessentially him. Asked about his first at-bat here on Tuesday, and Adam Wainwright’s in-game acknowledgment that he had deliberately given him a good pitch to hit, Jeter tried humor to defuse a bubbling controversy."
- "MLS is indeed growing. Atlanta has been confirmed as the league’s 22nd franchise, from 2017 and following NYCFC, David Beckham's Miami and Orlando, and the league is beginning an eight-year broadcast deal with ESPN, Fox Sports and Univision that is worth a reported $90 million annually, a huge increase."
