Brian McCann: All Star Among All Stars!
Brian McCann is the first player in Atlanta Braves history to make the All Star team in each of his first five years in the major leagues. Monday night in Anaheim, his three run bases clearing double earned him MVP honors for himself, as well as World Series home field advantage for his league (and hopefully his team). His big hit also snapped a thirteen year losing streak for the National League. As a bonus, the bat he used in the All Star game will immediately go into the baseball Hall of Fame. Not a bad night at the old ballpark for McCann, huh?
