Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish and Cardinals third baseman David Freese are headed to the All-Star game after fans voted them into Tuesday’s showcase in Kansas City.
Although each team is chock full of talent, there were nonetheless players who didn’t make the cut despite stellar first-half statistics.
As hordes of other St. Louis Cardinals fans turned out Sunday to swaddle themselves in their team’s improbable World Series title, Dave Huyette was counting his blessings rather than the riches he might have received had greed overtaken sportsmanship.
David Freese swooped in, expecting Elvis Andrus to bunt. He did, but the ball trickled wide of the line.
