2002 MLB All-Star Game

What's with the 2002 Major League All-Star Game ending in a tie? That's lamer than being struck out by a girl or eating only one plate of food at an all-you-can-eat buffet. In case you missed it, the 2002 MLB All-Star Game which was played at Milwaukee's Miller Park ended in a 7-7 tie after 11 innings because both teams said their pitchers were too tired to keep on playing.

How can they be too tired? These guys are all-stars and are paid millions of dollars because they can keep going and don't have to pack it in when they get tired. It's bad enough that these overpaid slobs are juicing up to hit more homeruns and are thinking of going on strike, now they can't even finish a baseball game if it goes into extra innings. They should've at least tried to settle the game with a homerun contest or a bench-clearing brawl.

Fans like the All-Star game because they get to see all their fave players compete against each other in one night. They want to see the game end with Barry Bonds hitting a game-winning homerun or Mariano Rivera striking someone out. They don't want to see the game end because some wimpy pitcher's arm is a little sore and he says he can't throw any more.

All-Star Extras

  • The Homerun Derby was won by Jason Giambi of the New York Yankees who defeated Sammy Sosa in the final. But Sammy was the fan favorite after hitting three homers that went more than 500 feet, including three that went right out of Miller Park.
  • Before the 2002 Major League All-Star Game, a ceremony was held to honor baseball legend, Ted Williams who died on July 5th. Ted's body is now sitting in a cryogenic freezing chamber in Arizona.
  • This was just the second time in All-Star game history that the game ended in a tie. The 1961 All-Star game ended in a tie because it was pouring rain.

    A Tie in the All-Star Game?

    • Totally lame - the players should've played until there was a winner.
    • Good idea - the players were tired and needed to get to bed.
    • They should've flipped a coin.
    • Who cares? Baseball sucks.
