Minneapolis, Minn.- The American League defeated the National League 5-3 in the 85th MLB All Star Game on Tuesday in Minnesota. However, Derek Jeter, playing in his 14th and final Midsummer Classic, was the real headline of the event as was expected. The expectations didn't necessarily include a 2 for 2 performance at the plate with a near incredible play up the middle though. But on a cool night in the Twin Cities that's exactly what the Yankees captain delivered.

The Mets are used to sending a talented infielder to the summer classic in recent years, but time missed due to injury and a lengthy slump kept the team’s captain David Wright from being picked to the National League All-Star team this year. Instead, Mets second Baseman Daniel Murphy gets the honor of representing the New York Mets at the All-Star Game in Minnesota next week.

July 4th often brings memories of summer barbeques, American flags waving and baseball. This year marks a special occasion in history, and it’s not the birth of the nation.
