Freddie Freeman's mic'd up All-Star at-bat against Justin Verlander
The latest editions of the All-Star Game have made an effort to add a little more levity to the mix. In 2017, Nelson Cruz paused an at-bat to have Yadier Molina take a selfie of him with umpire Joe West, and in 2018, we saw various players wearing microphones in the outfield. The affable Braves first baseman had a microphone on for his first-inning at-bat against AL All-Star starter Justin Verlander. Take it away, Freddie. FOX later had Christian Yelich and Cody Bellinger mic'd up in the outfield in addition to Freeman at first. Hopefully, these experiences will lead to more interactive mid-game interviews like this. I want to hear Clayton Kershaw as he's trying to strike someone out. I want to hear Mike Trout on first base plotting to steal second.
