According to the article, the coldest ASG was indeed in San Francisco - at Candlestick Park in 1984.

As much as I despise the Yankees, it was cool to see Jeter's introduction. Looked like he was fighting off tears. Nice to see Abreu, Ramirez and Sale represent the Sox. Well done, guys.

A double, then a triple, then a home run. Guess Jeter won't be handed MVP that easily.

And Matheny wanted Wainwright over Kershaw. Both wish they could have done better now I'm sure, but at least the AL kept the lead.

Alexei Ramirez enters the history books as the player who was subbed in for Jeter at his last All-Star game.

That'll be a great trivia question someday.

Sale gave up a run and the NL tied the game.

Good to see Neshek back in the ASG after what I recall was a bad injury. He was lights out early on in his Minnesota career.

Yay Alexei, getting a hit. Let's see if he can get a run here.

This is his first ASG.

Also - what a freak of pitching nature.

Good thing Alexei has played plenty of times here to figure out the bounce back on the backstop.
Meanwhile, people need to start realizing that little dude can play. Altuve hit that one hard.
