Chicago Machine breaks Big Red Machine

Leave a Comment
BORED OF ELECTIONS. Over enthusiastic fans have voted #Cubs ball boy Connor Hobbs into the MLB All-Star game. The seventh grader will be stationed along the right field wall at Petco Park next Tuesday. The flight to San Diego will mark his first time on an airplane, during which he hopes to watch a movie about gladiators.

The Cubs became the first team since the 1976 Cincinnati Reds’ Big Red Machine to have five players voted as All-Star starters, and seven Chicago players in all were picked Tuesday for the July 12 game at San Diego’s Petco Park.

Chicago’s entire infield was voted in – first baseman Anthony Rizzo, second baseman Ben Zobrist, shortstop Addison Russell and third baseman Kris Bryant – along with center fielder Dexter Fowler, who hopes to recover from a hamstring strain that has sidelined him since June 18. The only other team to start four infielders was the 1963 St. Louis Cardinals.


FIVE CUBS VOTED IN AS STARTERS-SEVEN OVER ALL

WELL DONE CUBS FANS!
