MLB Forgets Oakland's Derek Norris at All-Star Parade, Teammate Saves the Day

Oakland A's catcher Derek Norris made the All-Star Game for the first time in his young career in 2014, but he didn't get all of the perks of being an All-Star in Minnesota.

All-Stars are supposed get their own car and sign for the parade on the day of the game. That didn't happen for Norris.

Luckily, Norris had plenty of Oakland teammates—seven Athletics players were named All-Stars this season—he could call on for help. Pitcher Sean Doolittle stepped up and saved the day.

If Norris couldn't have his own car, he's probably happy that he was able to share the experience with his teammate.
