We need to see things like best OF arm, best C arm, and other related fun skills aside from hitting the longball.
After Larkin tore a ligament in his throwing arm they scrapped the skills competition. I was 14 when they had the ALL Star game in Cincy. It was held on my birthday. My mom went all out and bought tickets to the game and the workout. I remember Winfield firing bullets at the glass. I remember Santiago nailing the bullseyes at 2B like it was no big deal. Joe Carter was MASTERFUL in the bunting competition.
