all star game
The Nationals are sitting on D.C.’s first winning season in baseball in 43 years, with the most All-Stars representing the team since it’s inception 7 years ago, so it’s only fitting that, with an opening in 2015, Commissioner Selig brings the mid-summer classic back to the nation’s capital.
The Washington Nationals defeated the Rockies 4-1 Saturday, in a game that had plenty of fun highlights and mid-season accomplishments, but behind the scenes while 9 innings were being played, Bryce Harper is being told he’s an All-Star and Ian Desmond is admitting to himself that he’s not.
The finals two All-Star roster spots are up for grabs, and Major League Baseball has left it up for the fans to decide who gets the final nod. Washington, D.C. could potentially have 4 representatives this year in Kansas City if you vote Bryce Harper in online.
Bringing the game back to D.C. is overdue and would reward the loyal fans.
