Dodger Stadium in Hollywood played home to baseball’s A-list stars for the MLB All-Star 2022 Classic.
Clayton Kershaw, ace of the Los Angeles Dodgers, was the 6th starter in the past forty years to begin the All-Star Game in his home park, and he felt right at home.
Favorite Moments From The 2022 MLB All-Star Game
Check out a few of the best LA has to offer below, and see if our writers were accurate about anything!
A. Gonzalez, Alden Shohei Ohtani sprawled out on the ground at Dodger Stadium, staring blankly in all directions with his arms wide out. Ohtani had just moments before hit a clean base hit after declaring over the video board at Dodger Stadium, “First pitch, first swing.”
However, Clayton Kershaw does not live here. It was finally his time to shine. For the first out of a scoreless inning, he exacted his revenge by picking out Ohtani at first. The top players engaging in trash language, putting it all on the line, and laughing it up while doing it is exactly what the All-Star Game should be about.
After Kershaw noticed Ohtani leaning after his second lead, the Japanese hitter chuckled at himself. Yes, and rightly so.
Dave Schoenfield: Giancarlo Stanton’s five years in pinstripes have been a roller coaster ride. Actually, he learned quite soon that competing in York City is slightly different from being in Miami when he was booed after playing 0-for-5 with 5 strikeouts in his first week with the Yankees. Injuries prevented him from playing much throughout the 2019 and 2020 seasons. Over the years, the Yankees have been eliminated from the playoffs too early. Despite his continued prominence in the industry, it came as something of a surprise that this was Stanton’s first MLB All-Star Game since he joined the Yankees in 2018.
