Two More All-Star Games


If you think the All-Star Break is all but over, you’re wrong. Tonight the Triple A All-Star game will be played between the International League and Pacific League all-stars. The Eastern League All-Star game will also be played tonight. Both games will be on MiLB.TV.

Yesterday, before the first pitch of the MLB All-Star Game was even thrown, one of my very own Bowie Baysox, Aderlin Rodriguez, had won the Eastern League Home Run Derby. The Triple A home run derby took place on Monday, with the title being captured by Bryce Brentz of the Pawtucket Red Sox. Brentz hit 18 home runs and Rodriguez hit 14 to win their respective titles.

Congrats MiLB All-Stars!
