In what was going to be his last All-Star Game, Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones stepped up and spoke to his National League teammates before the game.
Chipper, in his first game ever at Kauffman Stadium, was asked by NL manager and former St. Louis Cardinals skipper Tony LaRussa to address the team.
Chipper quoted the great Lou Brown from "Major League" by saying, "We've won two. Win three, and that's a winning streak. We have an opportunity to do that tonight. And I am not going out losing my last one. So, you with me?"
Chipper and the NL team did just that by taking this year's edition of the MLB All-Star Game 8-0.
Jones, in his last ever All-Star at bat, singled against Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale.
"Yeah, I was thinking beat it out all the way," Jones said. "At 40 years old, legging out a hit in the All-Star Game. That's exactly how I scripted it."
