MLB All-Star Rosters 2012: Bryce Harper and Mike Trout Make Game Exciting Again
The MLB All-Star Game has some sizzle to it this year, as rookies Mike Trout and Bryce Harper will both represent their respective leagues. These two youngsters, who possess all five tools, will have a chance to show a national television audience what they can do.
The prospect of that has made the game exciting again.
Sure, we all know about Trout and Harper, but most of the country has yet to see them play.
The 20-year-old Trout has come up and played at an MVP level for the Los Angeles Angels. In 63 games, he has 11 home runs, 15 doubles and 39 RBI, to go along with 26 stolen bases. He has also played Gold Glove-caliber defense.
Oh, and I forgot to mention he leads the American League with a .343 batting average.
Meanwhile, Harper hasn't exactly been a slouch. The 19-year-old has provided a spark for the Washington Nationals. Through the first 62 games of his career, Harper boasts a .282 average with eight home runs, 25 RBI, 15 doubles, three triples and eight stolen bases. Like Trout, he has played stellar defense in the outfield as well.
The two rookies can flat-out play and will hopefully get a chance to show what they can do during Tuesday's All-Star Game. They are definitely the future of the game.
It is great to seem them getting selected as rookies, since they will both likely be involved in the game for the next decade or so.
I'm looking forward to watching the game just to see these two young superstars get a chance to play and show their stuff.
