In case you missed the 2018 MLB All-Star Game, you missed a good one, with a record 10 home runs and the American League All-Stars beating the National League All-Stars, 8-6 in the 10th inning.
In his first All-Star Game appearance, the MVP award went to Alex Bregman, a strong infield player who was instrumental in winning his AL Houston Astros the 2017 World Series (against the NL's Los Angeles Dodgers). Bregman hit a home run in the 10th inning to break a 5-5 tie.
As is custom for the last several years, Chevrolet awards the MVP a choice between a new car and a new pickup truck — this year between the pavement-loving Camaro SS and a trail-ready Colorado ZR2. In a stunning and confounding move, the young ballplayer did not choose the pickup. Oh well; we'll just chalk that up to a rookie error.
Pictured along with Alex Bregman is Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet; Kevin Burkhardt from Fox Sports; and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred (holding the crystal bat).
