2013 All-Star Game Logo
Select to see in high-resolution

Major League Baseball, the New York Mets and New York City on  Tuesday unveiled the official logo of the 2013 All-Star Game, which will be played at Citi Field on Tuesday, July 16th.

Those in attendance for  unveiling at Citi Field, before the Club’s evening game against the Miami Marlins, included Mets Chief Operating Officer Jeff Wilpon; Major League Baseball’s Executive Vice President, Business, Timothy Brosnan; the First Deputy Mayor of New York City, the Honorable Patricia E. Harris; Mets manager Terry Collins, who was a National League coach at this year’s All-Star Game in Kansas City; three Mets All-Stars: six-time Midsummer Classic participant David Wright, 2012 N.L. All-Star knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and four-time All-Star left-hander Johan Santana; and former Mets All-Stars Ron Darling, John Franco, Dwight Gooden and Keith Hernandez.

Fred Wilpon, CEO of the Mets, said: “We look forward to our fans, all New Yorkers and baseball fans from across the country enjoying the series of events celebrating baseball’s best leading up to the Midsummer Classic.”

“Major League Baseball hit a home run when they chose to hold the 2013 All-Star Game in New York City,” said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. “Incorporating our city’s iconic skyline into the logo highlights that the game will be played on the world’s biggest stage.”

The announcement of the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field took longer than expected due to the logistics around planning, not due to the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scandal, as some had speculated. While landing the All-Star Game is a big win for the Mets, it doesn’t translate well to the bottom line. Nearly all proceeds for the All-Star Game go back to the league as central revenue, including the All-Star Game, Home Run Derby and Futures Game.

The 2013 All-Star Game will mark the second time that the Mets, who are commemorating their 50th anniversary in 2012, will host the Midsummer Classic.  Shea Stadium hosted the 1964 All-Star Game, a 7-4 National League victory that featured 21 participating Hall of Famers, including Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Sandy Koufax, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays, as well as two of MLB’s Executive Vice Presidents, Frank Robinson and Joe Torre.  (Highlights of the 1964 All-Star Game at Shea Stadium are available here, courtesy of MLB Productions: http://atmlb.com/JjiQ9W.)

This will mark a record ninth time that the All-Star Game has been hosted in New York City.

Latest MiLB News

Minor League BaseballIn a sign that not only Major League Baseball, but Minor League Baseball is seeing an attendance increase from last year, MiLB announced today that its 176 clubs in 15 leagues drew 9,221,023 fans in July, bringing the season total to 31,567,709 through last month. The total represents an increase of more than 500,000 fans, or 1.6 percent, over 2011.

And, if rainouts hit MLB hard, it can be exponentially higher with the Minors based on the large number of clubs (146 more than MLB),

 “It is encouraging that our attendance remains ahead of last year, despite losing more than 100 games to weather last month,” Minor League Baseball President Pat O’Conner said. “Our fans’ continued support of their local Minor League Baseball club is a testament to the efforts of our club owners and operators to provide affordable, family entertainment for their communities.”

MiLB clubs averaged 3,973 fans a game in 7,945 openings through July. The Mexican League, which completed its regular season on July 30, attracted 400,000 more fans than it did in 2011.

Dodgers Hire Janet Marie Smith to Oversee Upgrades to Dodger Stadium PDF Print E-mail

Janet Marie SmithIn a sign that upgrades to Dodger Stadium will be in the offing under new ownership, the Los Angeles Dodgers today hired Janet Marie Smith as Senior VP of Planning and Development. Dodger President Stan Kasten made the announcement.

(READ THE BIZ OF BASEBALL INTERVIEW WITH JANET MARIE SMITH)

Smith, known throughout the sports world for her work with the Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Braves, joins the Dodgers immediately.  She most recently served as the Orioles Vice President of Planning and Development.

“Dodger Stadium is one of the most iconic venues in sports and Janet Marie is one of the few people I would trust with its future,” said Kasten. “She respects baseball’s tradition and knows how to retain a ballpark’s distinctive charms while providing fans with the amenities and comfort they’ve come to expect. Any fan that has walked through the gates at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the renovated Fenway Park or Atlanta’s Turner Field has been a beneficiary of her understanding of what a ballpark means to its community. Every new baseball stadium built since 1992 has been influenced by what she helped build at Camden Yards.  And we thank Orioles owner Peter Angelos for allowing Janet Marie to join us.”

In her new role with the Dodgers, Smith will oversee upgrades and enhancements to Dodger Stadium.

“I’m looking forward to working with the new Dodgers ownership to find ways to create an even better fan experience,” said Smith. “Dodger Stadium is a treasured piece of the Los Angeles community and a special place where I watched more than a dozen games per season when I lived in L.A. during the early 1980s. It’s important to all of us that we restore and enhance the park in a way that honors its heritage and highlights its distinctive appeals, while still capturing what fans want and franchises need in a modern venue.”

Of Marie Smith’s departure, Orioles Managing Partner Peter Angelos gave her high praise.

“The Orioles greatly appreciate Janet Marie Smith’s efforts over the past three years, as she has overseen the construction of our widely lauded ballpark in Sarasota and many significant enhancements to Oriole Park at Camden Yards.  In Sarasota, the goal was to create a ballpark that the local community and all of our fans would be proud to visit, and after two record-setting springs, this has clearly been achieved.

“At Oriole Park, we asked Janet Marie to enhance the fan experience, honor our history, and revitalize some areas of the ballpark with new, more contemporary concepts.  And in this 20th anniversary season, those objectives have resulted in bringing our fans the Roof Deck, Dempsey’s and the Orioles Legends sculptures.

“Janet Marie was the perfect choice to oversee these projects, and we wish her the best of luck in her new role with the Dodgers.”

Prior to rejoining the Orioles in 2009, Smith had spent seven years with the Boston Red Sox as Senior Vice President of Planning and Development, overseeing preservation of and improvements to historic Fenway Park and its surrounding neighborhood. In Atlanta, she held the positions of President of Turner Sports and Entertainment Development, a division of Turner Broadcasting System, and Vice President of Planning and Development for the Atlanta Braves, where she helped transform the 1996 Olympic Stadium into Turner Field for the Braves, and oversaw the development of the Philips Arena, home of the NBA Atlanta Hawks and NHL Atlanta Thrashers.

From 1989-1994, Smith worked with the Orioles as Vice President of Planning and Development overseeing the design and construction of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, which opened in 1992.  Camden Yards is considered the archetype for new ballparks and ushered in a wave of downtown ballfields that capture the warmth and appeal of classic older parks while offering comfortable, state-of-the-art facilities.

Smith holds a master's degree in urban planning from City College of New York and a bachelor of architecture degree from Mississippi State University.

Hackers Hit Several MLB Facebook Accounts, Say Jeter Getting Sex Change PDF Print E-mail

Jeter

No, Derek Jeter is not getting a sex
change. Hackers said the shortstop was
on the Yankees Facebook page yesterday

Ah, the joys of social media in sports. You grow your fan base, market directly to them, and (if you do your homework), convert them into ticket buyers.

But, if there’s a platform that isn’t wholly controlled by a business (and even then, it can be breached), you can find yourself hacked.

Case in point, Facebook and Major League Baseball. Like every other sports league, having a Facebook presence has become mandatory. That can lead to problems, and yesterday, it did.

According to a report in the Wall St. Journal, several MLB Facebook accounts were hacked and with it, the hackers posted various content to the account Walls. On the Yankees FB page, shortstop Derek Jeter was the target, and with it it was announced that the future Hall of Famer was getting a sex change:

"We regret to inform our fans that Derek Jeter will miss the rest of the season with sexual reassignment surgery. He promises to come back stronger than ever in 2013 as Minnie Mantlez," the team's page stated at around 3:30 p.m.

There was more.

The Marlins page said that the first 18,000 that attended the game last night would get a free pit bull. The Nationals page said they were relocating back to Montreal as the Expos. And the WSJ reported more saying, “The page for the Padres noted that handicapped fans, while permitted to attend ballgames, are not encouraged to attend. The Giants page expressed distaste for the head of the company Chick-Fil-A, which has been in the news recently due to President Dan T. Cathy's opposition to gay marriage.”

MLB Advanced Media handles this sort of thing and would be investigating. In a statement they said, “We are working with Facebook, Major League Baseball Security and, where appropriate, legal authorities to determine the circumstances surrounding this situation."

Why Expanded Instant Replay in MLB Hasn’t Happened Yet PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 7
PoorBest 
Maury Brown Article Archive
Written by Maury Brown

MLBIn December, when the memorandum of understanding on MLB’s new labor agreement was announced, a key provision announced under the category of “other” was this:

Instant Replay will be expanded to include fair/foul and “trapped” ball plays, subject to the Office of the Commissioner’s discussions with the World Umpires Association.

Whether the press didn’t read this, ignored it, or didn’t understand it, Commissioner Selig and the league has been pounded for not implementing it yet.

Going back to that provision, the MLBPA had signed off, MLB had signed off, the World Umpires Association had not.

For some reason this week, when Selig reiterated that he was in favor of bringing expanded instant replay into the game, the media pounced. Whether it was because Selig said it on "The Mike Lupica Show" on ESPN New York, or the fact that here we with just over a third left in the season, the league and Selig have been seen as dragging their feet.

"We're now going to add it on trapped balls in the outfield and as I call them bullets down the right and left field line," Selig said.

This is nothing new. It’s in the contract with the umpires. It’s endorsed by the league. It’s endorsed by the union for the players.

Where fans and the press get crossed up is when Selig seems to send mixed messages. When he addressed the BBWAA at the All-Star Game this year, the commissioner said, "We've been through this lot, we're going to expand instant replay when we have the technology to do that," Selig said. "We will review it. Baseball is a game of pace, you can't compare it to anything else. We have to be careful how we proceed.''

So, if there’s a failing from Selig it’s a matter of total clarity. Writers, so wholly used to hearing Selig talk about addressing matters at a pace that isn’t exactly the quickest (ahem, the A’s relocation issue), have been programmed to latch onto anything that seems to point to waffling. In this case, it’s the sentence, “We have to be careful how we proceed.''

Here’s what I would expect: expanded instant replay could be as early as this postseason, and if not then, in place by the beginning of the 2013 regular season. It impacts the umpires. It’s something that, while needed, is always going to be hotly debated by purists of the game. But, at least it’s coming. When ESPN runs it on radio, don’t act like it’s something new. After all, it was announced last December.

Maury BrownWondering when would be a good time to write this column, it seems that opportunity has finally landed in my lap. The issue is the Hall of Fame, and the inclusion process, namely as it pertains to those players in the “Steroid Era.”

Grappling with the subject really means an examination of the Hall of Fame, the players in the Steroid Era, and those in the voting process, many of whom are part of the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA).

As is often the case when one goes about selecting anything for inclusion into a group, the more defined you set the criteria, the easier it is to place items into one bucket or the other. When it comes to players in baseball, the use of statistics is often the measure of defining greatness.

But, it isn’t the “Hall of Greatness” it’s the “Hall of Fame” and with it, the criteria for inclusion has become muddied. Throw in that there are players that have been out-and-out proven to use performance-enhancing drugs, or worse, suspected of using, and the waters are as clear as split-pea soup on who should, or should not, get votes.

Into the fray, people like myself weigh in, but others as well. Such will be the case when Bryant Gumbel has his closing remarks on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel (10pm ET/PT). Bryant will close with the following:

“Finally tonight comes word that Reggie Jackson has wisely decided to pass on this weekend’s induction ceremonies at Cooperstown. You may have seen that Jackson recently caused a stir by suggesting that a variety of baseball notables didn’t merit inclusion in the Hall of Fame. Now, because his judgment was personal and his timing terrible, Reggie has since retreated from his stated views. But here’s hoping that the gist of what he said isn’t altogether lost on the Hall’s voters.

You see Reggie was basically right in contending that the hall should be special and its doors should not be opened just because someone stuck around long enough to collect 3,000 hits or 300 wins. Yes, the numbers are proof of some very good players. But as the former star pitcher Jim Kaat has often noted so astutely, Cooperstown’s supposed to be a Hall of Fame – not a hall of achievement.

If the voters are really so obsessed with honoring guys with the numbers, they’d be wise to start rethinking the exclusion of those megastars linked to steroids, and do it quickly. Because the next Cooperstown ballot will, for the first time, include among others, both the seven-time MVP Barry Bonds and the seven-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens. And while both men have a suspect past, it’s going to be hard to argue they don’t deserve a bust in Cooperstown. After all, a hall of fame that somehow excludes the game’s homerun king and its most honored pitcher and its all-time hits leader, would really be making a mockery of itself.”

The debate about whether a player is worthy of inclusion means you have to understand the mind of the voters, and with that, you get wildly divergent opinions, often passionately so. Many of the writers I’ve spoken with have held fast to the position that they will not vote for a player that fits Barry Bonds or Roger Clemens for the Hall of Fame, falling into two camps: “never” and “not on the first ballot.”

It’s here where there’s some wiggle room. It’s here that I side with the non-voters of the latter ilk. No, I do not have a vote, but if the good graces ever fall upon me, it seems more than reasonable to make a statement on the issues of performance-enhancing drugs and its effects on the statistics by which we should measure “greatness” by saying a voter deserves the right to consider a player such as Bonds or Clemens for the Hall of Fame, but it won’t be on the first ballot.” You’re not saying you won’t vote for him; just not now.

Finally, the larger question surrounds the fact that it is the Hall of “Fame” and therefore, you’re talking about something subjective. Bonds and Clemens certainly meet the “fame” criteria. Whether their greatness was fueled in part by better- performance-through-chemistry, is ultimately a question that can’t definitively be answered.

Despite Blowout, 2012 MLB All-Star Game Sees 3% Ratings Increase PDF Print E-mail

2012 All-Star Game

It may be more surprising than the final score. Despite an 8-0 shellacking by the National League over the American League in Tuesday night’s 2012 MLB All-Star Game, television ratings were actually up. According to the overnight numbers from Nielsen, FOX pulled an 8.1 national rating, up 3 percent from the 7.9 rating from last year’s game in Phoenix.
So, that means ratings were "good"? Not exactly. The ratings last year were the lowest on record. That means the 2012 MLB All-Star Game was the second-lowest rated, ever.
The highest ratings for last night's ASG were in St. Louis where the rating number was a staggering 20.5. Other high ratings were reported in Detroit, Cincinnati, and Dallas.

MLB All-Star Game

One thing that has taken sports by storm is the amount of social media activity, especiially through Twitter. While it's created some difficulty, for the most part, sports leagues have embraced it.
Such is the case with this year's MLB All-Star Game festvitiies. Starting yesterday with the State Farm Home Run Derby (@StateFarm #HRDerby on ESPN) and the 83rd MLB All-Star Game (@MLB #ASG, Tuesday, July 10 at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX) the two together promise to be the most social events in baseball history.

During the All-Star Game, computer stations will be set up adjacent to each clubhouse allowing players -- once they are no longer competing in the game -- to quickly reach out to fans via social media while completing their other media obligations before returning to the bench. And during the State Farm Home Run Derby the previous night, stations will be set up on both sides of the field near the dugouts for the second consecutive year, where players will be able to log into their own social media accounts while uploading photo and video content shot on their personal mobile devices.  This initiative is a collaboration between Major League Baseball, the Major League Baseball Players Association (@MLB_Players) and MLB Advanced Media, with support from both ESPN and FOX for their respective events.

Below is a list of those accounts along with other official accounts that will be actively posting content during the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby. Players who are not active social media users will have the opportunity to participate via the official MLB/MLBPA accounts.

Cain, now a three-time N.L. All-Star, threw the first perfect game in Giants franchise history and the 22nd of all-time on June 13th against the Houston Astros. His 14 strikeouts were tied for the most ever in a perfect game, matching Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax. The eighth-year hurler, who has a 3.29 career ERA, threw 21.1 innings without allowing an earned run in the 2010 Postseason, helping lift the Giants to the city of San Francisco’s first World Series Championship. Cain became the sixth pitcher in Major League history to make three starts in a Postseason without allowing an earned run. His streak of 21.1 innings without allowing an earned run to start his Postseason career is the sixth longest in Major League history. The durable right-hander has made at least 31 starts in each full season of his career (2006-2011).

Verlander, now a five-time A.L. All-Star, was both the 2011 American League Most Valuable Player and the 2011 A.L. Cy Young Award winner after going 24-5 with a 2.40 ERA, becoming the 10th pitcher of all-time to win both in the same season and the first since Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley in 1992. The Old Dominion product was also the A.L. Rookie of the Year in 2006, when he helped Detroit reach the World Series for the first time since 1984. Verlander becomes the first pitcher ever to win an MVP, a Cy Young, the Rookie of the Year Award and to start an All-Star Game in his career. Don Newcombe won the three awards but never started the Midsummer Classic in his four All-Star appearances. Verlander owns a career record of 116-62 with a 3.45 ERA and has thrown two no-hitters in his career. The Virginia native will become the seventh different Tigers pitcher to start the All-Star Game (10th overall).

The 2012 All-Star Game will be played at Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday, July 10th. The 83rd All-Star Game will be televised nationally by FOX Sports; in Canada by Rogers Sportsnet and RDS; and worldwide by partners in more than 200 countries via MLB International’s independent feed. Pregame ceremonies will begin at 8:00 p.m. (ET)/7:00 p.m. (CT). ESPN Radio and ESPN Radio Deportes will provide exclusive national radio coverage of the All-Star Game. MLB Network, MLB.com and SiriusXM also will provide comprehensive All-Star Week coverage.;
