It's the 2009 MLB All-Star game. There are snipers standing on top of Busch Stadium's upper tier. Mariano Rivera's entire family is sitting in the American League dugout. Joe Torre and Tony La Russa are singing the ingredients to their favorite zeppoles in the National League dugout. Almost everyone not in uniform is wearing a Big Red or Dentyne blazer. And Tim McCarver even called a few innings with his pants on.
Clearly, special arrangements have been made for this baseball game.
Is it really that much sweat off MLB's sack to provide Roy Halladay with a Blue Jays batting helmet?
