AllStar weekend was in full swing here in New York City this past weekend. As part of the festivities there was a stickball tournament in Harlem where Willie Mays was the honoree! We witnessed Josh Hamilton’s fireworks display during the Homerun Derby and finally, last night, we experienced our first and last AllStar game at the old Yankee Stadium, “The House That Ruth Built.” Thanks to R2 Studios for the flix! Without further ado, here are our highlights!
Rarely has a sport’s dominant player made the game look so easy and natural. Michael Jordan made basketball look easy; Tiger Woods’ stroke makes golf look like a sport that anyone can master and Mario Lemieux’s heroics made hockey seem like a child’s game. Barry Bonds is at that level; The man hits “fourbaggers” left and right, effortlessly and without breaking a sweat.
