How Would You Break the All-Star Game Tie?
Were you ticked off like most fans were after the 2002 Major League Baseball All-Star Game ended in a tie? Don't you think those millionaire athletes could have found a way to finish the game, rather than ending it after 11 innings with the score tied 7-7?
Kidzworld has come up with a few suggestions on how the 2002 Major League Baseball All-Star Game could have ended. Which one do you think is the best? Vote in our poll above or your own ideas.
After the 11 innings, the National League and American League teams would each pick five players to participate in a homerun contest. Whichever team's players hit the most homers would win the game. The fans would love it and it's way better than having the game end in a tie.
Bench-clearing brawls happen at least once a week during the regular season, so they could make them part of the All-Star game as well. After 11 innings, both teams could leave the dugouts and have a WWE-style Royal Rumble in the middle of the diamond.
You can't watch five seconds of a baseball game without seeing a player spitting out chewing tobacco, blowing a bubble with bubble gum or grabbing his crotch. Why not showcase these skills at the All-Star game? The team that can spit the furthest, blow the biggest bubbles and hang on to their crotch the longest wins the game.
Why couldn't the teams just keep playing? If the pitchers were tired and didn't think they could throw another ball, just get the first baseman or one of the outfielders to pitch. These guys get paid millions of dollars so they should be able to pitch once in a while. What do you think? How should the 2002 All-Star Game have been decided. Vote in our poll above or your ideas.
