MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — On a sparkling summer night in the Upper Midwest, baseball generations joined up and prepared to pass.
Derek Jeter, the 40-year-old face of baseball, bid farewell to the All-Star game at the same time 22-year-old Mike Trout became the second-youngest player to earn Most Valuable Player honors at the showcase.
The 41,048 fans at Target Field buzzed from start to finish. Many no doubt will say years from now they were there when Jeter soaked in the adulation one more time on baseball’s national stage, and when Trout showed why he’s perhaps the top candidate to become the sport’s next iconic player.
Jeter and Trout, who is the nephew of City of Poteau water department employee Charles Busonick and wife Sandra, propelled the American League to a 5-3 victory over the National on Tuesday for its 13th win in 17 years.
