Derek Jeter may have given the 2014 MLB All-Star Game historical and emotional significance, but the night belonged to Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout. Trout, 22, won the MVP and the Corvette by going 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, one run and 2 RBI. He also helped give the American League representative home field advantage in this year’s World Series.
In a welcome departure from recent years, this version of the Midsummer Classic was both closely contested and high scoring as the American League won 5-3. Jeter left the game in the bottom of the third inning to a standing ovation after quickly recording two hits and scoring a run. He leaves behind an incredible ASG legacy.
No. 2 Derek Jeter now has the 2nd-highest batting average in All-Star Game history (.481) Charlie Gehringer ranks 1st- .500 (10-20)
