The All Stars are Out Tonight
You may recall that a few months ago, I wrote here about first baseman Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago Cubs, and embedded a wonderful, glowing feature on him that the MLB Network aired, including the tale of his overcoming Hodgkins disease.
Well, just to update you -- he was just selected to the National League All Star team today. It's his second time as an All Star, following his selection last year.
Also, if you read any sports pages, you know of the Cubs rookie Kris Bryant, a gem of a guy who was voted the Minor League Player of the Year last season, and is having a terrific rookie year.
He was also selected to the National League All Star team. Neither he or Rizzo were voted in as starters, but backup replacements. But still.
O joy. Hubba!

That's Chris Sale. But he's with the White Sox, also know as "the other Chicago team."

From a Cub fans perspective I would have thought the other Chicago teams were the Bulls, Bears, and Blackhawks.

Okay, I know I could just look it up but I figured this would be more fun.

While there is some truth to that, as I've noted here in the past I actually grew up a White Sox fan, though eventually saw the light. So, I still cut them a bit of slack...

Basically right. very good. At a certain point, Jim Hickman played first, and also Joe Pepitone. Other starters were Bill Hands and Burt Hooton, though Hooton came a bit more at the end of that run.

As I sit here playing Texas Holden I look up and see Dallas Beeler pitching for the cubs. I played soft ball against his dad about 100 years ago in Tulsa
