We are watching the Major League All-Star baseball game this evening which is being played at Target Field in Minneapolis. Derek Jeter led off for the American League in his final season and doubled to right field and went on to score in the 3 run top of the 1st. He also got a base hit in his 2nd time up in the 3rd inning. He went out to his shortstop position for the 4th inning but was pulled for a replacement and received a tremendous ovation. The National League eventually tied it up at 3-3 but the American League has just scored 2 runs in the top of the 5th to lead 5-3. The game has more meaning now that it determines the home team for the World Series. We regretted that Alex Gordon has a wrist injury and unable to play after being selected. It was good to see Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez as the starting catcher. It will be a late night for old folks to stay up to see the end of the game.
