2012 MLB All-Star Game rosters revealed

@SportsBata ..nuff said

The 2012 #MLB All-Star game rosters have been revealed! #Jeter, #Grandy, #Cano, and C.C. Sabathia made the starting squad, and the Texas Rangers matched them with four starters of their own! The San Francisco Giants have four starters in the All-Star game! It is #Jeter 13th (7th straight) All-Star game appearance, C.C. sixth, and it is the third appearance for #Cano and #Grandy! #Jeter will not miss out on the All-Star game, like he did last year! Mets’ knuckleball ace R.A Dickey was a first pick for the All-Star game! The All-Star Game will take place on Tuesday July 10 in Kansas City (Royals) at Kauffman Stadium; TV Coverage will start at 7:30PM on FOX! Check out the complete AL and NL roster charts below and All-Star game 10 biggest snubs!

Joe Torre, Paul O’Neill, and Bernie Williams enjoy Old Timers Day.

The #Yankees held their 66th annual Old Timers day, yesterday! Bernie Williams, Joe Torre, Darryl Strawberry, Yogi Berra, Rickey Henderson, Paul O’Neil, David Cone, Whitey Ford, Don Larsen, “Goose” Gossage, and Bucky Dent all came out in honor of their former years with the #Yankees! 50-plus players came out to play in the Old Timers game! During the game, Joe Torre says that Roger Clemens belongs in the Hall of Fame (despite strong HGH allegations)!

The #Yankees went on to beat the White Sox, 4-2, in the game that followed, and evened the series with the Chicago White Sox winning two games apiece! Chi-Sox pitcher Jake Peavey starting crying about the #Yankees lofting balls over (Yankee stadium) short fence after Saturdays game (Yankees won 4-0)!

In #NFL news, Niners LB Aldon Smith was stabbed, but suffered minor injuries over the weekend.
