baseball-all-star-game-triviaThank you all for your hard work this week keeping the world spinning. For those of you that were on vacation or unemployed and sleeping, the MLB All-Star game is next week and we need to re-establish our mid summer classic knowledge. Without this All Star game, the two teams playing in the World Series would have no idea where they are playing the first game, be completely lost and they would never end up playing the series. Many gamblers would never bet on the game therefore keeping many more families in their homes killing the housing market and on and on. As you can see, this All Star game is very important and we must be brought up to speed with this trivia.
