MLB All Star Game 2009

Conrad Kn | Conrad Kn ( Mon 6th, July 2009 )

Ever since the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago, the entire nation waits for the MLB season to reach its halfway point to see the cream of the crop duke it out in the Major League Baseball All Star game.

High hopes, big stakes and a surprise twist were the trademarks of last year's match when the American League snatched home field advantage from the National League with a 4-3 result.

This year, at the St. Louis Cardinals' Bush Stadium, players from all over the Nation and selected via polls by the fan base, the teams' management and heir coaches. As the voting nearly closes in the All-Star game drafts, stories or rivalry and triumph are already appearing in the media.

But we will not only get the usual spectacle of the 50 top baseball prospects in action, slugging, throwing and catching their way to victory. Fifteen-time All Star player and Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith will be helming the U.S. team against former Cardinals double play partner Jose Oquendo, coaching the World team at the All-Star Futures Game. Grammy winner Sheryl Crow will be performing a charity concert accompanied by no other than Elvis Costello under the Gateway Arch on Saturday at 8 p.m. CT, with proceeding going towards the "Stand Up To Cancer" organization. And no other than U.S. President Barack Obama will be throwing the first pitch, joining the likes of Gerald Ford and John F. Kennedy.
