Prince Fielder hits a home run wearing All Star Edition Franklin batting gloves.
words // Nick Engvall
The Mid-Summer Classic is unlike All-Star games in most professional sports, as it actually has some importance, at least to the competitive teams in the league. The winner of Major League Baseball’s All-Star game decides which team will have home field advantage in the Fall Classic.
This year’s game was won by the National League, thanks to a 3-run home run by Milwaukee Brewers slugger Prince Fielder. Fielder blasted an opposite field dinger, off of the Rangers C.J. Wilson, that bounced off the top of the fence and over. He becomes the first player in Milwaukee Brewers history to hit a home run in the All-Star Game. The home run earned him the game’s Most Valuable Player award, which is also a first for the Brewers franchise.
