Being an All-Star is old hat for Rangers shortstop Michael Young, who made his fifth Midsummer Classic appearance Tuesday night. Playing the role of hero is getting pretty familiar, too. Young, named the All-Star MVP in Pittsburgh two years ago after hitting a two-run triple in the ninth inning, supplied the game-winning RBI for the American League again Tuesday with a 15th-inning sacrifice fly that ended an epic 4-3 battle.
Non c’era modo migliore per dire addio allo Yankee Stadium, “la casa che Babe Ruth costruì” destinato a chiudere i battenti al termine di questa stagione. American League e National League hanno dato vita all’All Star Game più lungo della storia del baseball.
