ESPN: All Star Game To Feature Self-Service Beer Stations

Self-serve beer stations are up and running in Target Field, so Minnesota Twins fans and those who attend the Major League Baseball All-Star festivities next week can decide what they want and even how much they want of it.
.  .  .
Fans attending Twins games can go to a cash register, show their ID and preload a $10 or $20 card. For the All-Star Game, a $50 card will be available. Fans then scan the card at the machine and can choose between four beers and regulate how much they want to have poured. Bud and Bud Light will cost 38 cents per ounce, while Shock Top Lemon Shandy and Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale will cost 40 cents per ounce.
.  .  .
The machine allows a customer to use the card to pour up to 48 ounces of beer every 15 minutes.

Delaware North will also use the All-Star Game festivities to show off some new food items, including lobster corn dogs and a Hangover Burger, which features two hamburger patties with bacon, American cheese and a fried egg with mayo, ketchup and sriracha.

I for one welcome our new robot overlords.

Brewers Catcher Jonathan Lucroy’s Anti-Cardinals All-Star Ad Is Perfect

Best Attack Ads in Baseball

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy’s making a push to get voted into this season’s All-Star Game, and his anti-Yadier Molina, anti-Cardinals message features the kind of mudslinging one could only find in a local political ad.

I voted 150 times for Lucroy when I heard the sound of a baby crying over footage of Molina.

Hamm, Peterson on initial ASG softball rosters

If the MST3K Robots aren’t present, it’s not a real Minnesota Celebrity Softball Game…

On Thursday morning, MLB announced the first wave of participants for the July 13 game at Target Field. They include Jack Morris and Jim Thome; Minnesota pro sports stars Adrian Peterson of the Vikings, Zach Parise of the Wild, Kevin Love of the Wolves and Maya Moore of the Lynx; Jon Hamm from the hit TV show “Mad Men” and the baseball movie “Million Dollar Arm” that hits theaters starting Friday; and Minnesota residents and TV personalities Andrew Zimmern and James Denton.

These participants will take the field alongside additional stars from music, TV and sports, announced at a later date along with other baseball legends. The game will immediately follow the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game on that Sunday before the Midsummer Classic and will air on ESPN immediately following the Home Run Derby on Monday, July 14.

Randy Jones, Al Oliver & Dan Epstein live-blog the 1976 All-Star Game

EPSTEIN: Randy, going back to what you said about staying the Bellevue-Stratford hotel in Philly during All-Star week, and then there’s that breakout of Legionnaires disease two weeks later. How did you feel about hearing that news?

RANDY JONES: Yes I remember that well. That happened a week after we left. Myself and some of the Padre players couldn’t believe our luck at not getting sick. Figured it just wasn’t our time. Very freaky.

AL OLIVER: I remember the Legionnaires disease thing all too well. About two weeks after the All-Star break, I came down with an inner ear problem, balance problems. I was hitting .360 at the break, the best first half of my career-

EPSTEIN: You were leading the league in hitting at the time-

AL OLIVER: That’s right, and soon after that, I came down with the inner-ear problem. Got so bad I had to ask out of a couple games. They ran tests on me but didn’t find anything. Their conclusion was the inner-ear infection was causing my instability. I ended up not qualifying for the batting crown that year. I thought, some way, I got some kind of strain. I just wasn’t the same in the 2nd half.
