2008 Major League Allstar Game - Special Moment For All Baseball Fans

"The 59th MLB All-Star game was a classic"

Tonight I was deeply touched by the introductions at the 59th Major League Allstar Game. Seeing such a great collection of Major League Allstars on the field for the National Anthem will always be a memory that I will cherish. This is truly America's game. I am proud to have the priviledge to coach it. Thanks MLB for a special moment. It was great to Yogi Berra, one of my all time favorites Hall of Famers. The clips of him leaping high into the arms of Don Larson in the 1956 World Series were a special touch to the telecast. For more on the 1956 World Series visit the Baseball Almanac.

As I type this Derek Jeter is replaced by Michael Young at Short. He receives a great ovation from the crowd. National League Leads 2-0. Jeter is one of my favorite players in the game today!

I can't talk about Yogi without including three of his famous quotes that I consider to be "classic":

--"I always thought that record would stand until it was broken."
--"Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical."
--"You can observe a lot just by watching."

Thank you Yankees for hosting such as great event in the last year of Yankee stadiums use. Thanks Yogi for the memories! Thank you Major League Baseball!
