Alex Bregman and George Springer come to the rescue late in the 2018 All-Star Game.

The 2018 All-Star Game featured a record-setting ten home runs. The last two coming from some familiar faces. Alex Bregman and George Springer are best known for crushing home runs in the World Series last October. The two Astros are no strangers to the spotlight. Springer who was named last years World Series MVP for his numerous “Springer Dingers” he hit last fall. Bregman, however, is establishing himself this season as the Houston Astros superstar.

Now that the All-Star game does not determine home field advantage in the World Series, fans have a hard time finding a reason to watch the Summer Classic. The young budding stars should be cause enough for fans to be engaged in the game. The biggest and brightest stars in all of baseball are all on one field for one night. What is great about the MLB All-Star game is that it features relatively new players every year, unlike other sports. This years game was no different with a record-breaking 21 first time All-Stars.

For Alex Bregman, it was his first All-Star game and Home Run Derby appearance. Bregman is transforming into a household name in the baseball world. His 10th inning home run to win the All-Star game may have put him into superstar territory to go along with his World Series title in Houston.

Both Bregman and Springer lead the way for the young guns in the 2018 All-Star Game, but they were not the only ones. Aaron Judge flexed his muscles early with a solo shot along with Mike Trout. Jean Segura had a 3-run home run for the American League side. For the National League, the story is the same. Trevor Story and Wilson Contreras both had long solo home runs. While Christian Yelich and Scooter Gennett had late-inning home runs to tie the game late. However, it was not enough to surpass the stacked line-up of the AL squad. The final score was 8-6 in one of the most memorable Summer Classics in recent memory.
