2013 All-Star Game: Highlighting Most Entertaining Players in Star-Studded Clash
The MLB will celebrate the best that baseball has to offer on Tuesday night in the 2013 All-Star Game. The classic midsummer matchup, pitting the American League against the National League, will take place at Citi Field in the Big Apple.
So, who should fans be most excited to see?
Here, we'll take a closer look at a trio of stars sure to entertain fans on Tuesday.
Chris Davis, American League, 1B
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is the most electrifying player in baseball heading into the All-Star break. No player in the majors has more home runs this season than Davis, who has gone yard 35 times in 93 games for the Orioles.
Every time the 27-year-old steps up to the plate, it's must-see television, and Tuesday night will be no different.
The 6'3", 230-pound Davis' .702 slugging percentage is currently tops in the league among qualified players.
He will warm up in the Home Run Derby on Monday night before looking to blast a few out of the park for the American League on Tuesday in yet another high-stakes All-Star Game.
Matt Harvey, National League, SP
New York Mets breakout star Matt Harvey will be pitching in his home stadium on Tuesday night, which should make for some fun reactions from the crowd.
The 24-year-old made major noise earlier this season after starting off 5-0 and posting a 1.56 ERA through the month of April. Although his numbers have taken a hit as the season has worn on, he's still sporting a 2.35 ERA and a 7-2 record overall.
Plus, after making a nude appearance in ESPN The Magazine's "Body Issue" this summer, the buzz surrounding Harvey has reached a fevered pitch.
He is one of the best young pitchers in the game, and everything he's done this season has been fun to watch.
Bryce Harper, National League, OF
Whether he's hitting himself in the head with a bat or playing with a reckless abandon, crashing into outfield walls, Washington Nationals sensation Bryce Harper is always worth the price of admission.
Which player are you most excited to watch?
Despite missing a chunk of time to injury, he has been playing solid baseball this season, sparking the Nats, smashing 13 homers and batting in 29 runs in 53 games.
Like Davis, Harper is a big-time power hitter who will be participating in the Home Run Derby 24 hours before the All-Star Game. Remember, Harper hit 22 dingers as a 19-year-old in his debut season a year ago.
But whether he's at the plate or in the field, Harper is the most consistently entertaining player in the majors. And you can bet his presence will delight fans at Citi Field on Tuesday night.
