This Just-in: 2009 MLB All-Star Game

Jul 19, 2009

My 8-year old nephew Justin has really taken an interest in sports the past couple months.  For his birthday party he had a sports theme.  First we split up into teams and played basketball. One team was the Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons.  We also went to a baseball field and played a game of kickball.  It was a lot of fun. 

As Justin has become increasingly interested in sports he asked if he could post comments on my site.  In an effort to foster his interest in sports as well as his writing ability, I said not only could he leave comments, but he could write an occasional article.  This is his first effort. 

All-Star Game Observations
By Justin Lester

The American League won the 2009 All-Star Game 4-3 thanks to Carl Crawford, who was named MVP of the game.  Crawford plays for the Tanpa Bay Rays as an Outfielder.  He made a great catch to take a Home Run away from Brad Hawpe.

There were three Minnesota Twins on the American League team.  Joe Nathan pitched in the the 8th inning, Joe Mauer got one trip around the bases, and  Justin Morneau played First base in the 8th and 9th Innings.

    Hope to see more, I wish I had a place besides the School Lunchroom to express my Sports takes when I was a kid.
    How old is Justin?
