Slap Hitter: All Stars save Baseball!

Love baseball. Love history. Especially love baseball history. But last night’s All Star game at Yankee Stadium should be celebrated because Today trumped the Past in a huge upset. Consider the first half hour of All-Star “festivities” drenched, as always, in the effluvium of golden days (“Look it’s Yogi Berra”, “Hey it’s Willie Mays”, makes makes me hope somebody like the Devil Rays get to host an All-Star game and are coerced into trotting out one of the their ahem, legends–“Hey is that really Bubba Trammell?”). Considering it was the Last Night at Yankee Stadium and that the treacly tunes were cranked up so loud the old-timers could hear it, what a stunna that the Game whipped Nostalgia in 15 innings.
