BayBears in MLB All-Star Lineup

For the second year in a row, there will be two former BayBears in the Major League All-Star Game lineup. Making his second appearance in the past two years is Jason Bay, and making his All-Star debut is Texas Ranger Gary Matthews Jr. Matthews has developed into one of the great center fielders in the game. Does anyone remember his unbelieveable catch he made with the Cubs when the ball bounced out of his glove and he barehanded it full extension--ALL while sliding on his back? In my opinion, the best baseball catch of all time. Jake Peavy is the only other BayBear that has made it to the mid-summer classic.

The BayBears finish up a five game set tonight against Birmingham. A win gets Mobile a series win. Jack Cassell will be on the mound for the BayBears. Fireworks to follow the game.
