All-Star Futures Game:
The World team beat the US team 3-0 on Sunday. Che-Hsuan Lin, making his first plate appearance of the game in the 7th, would launch the first pitch he saw over the left field fence to plate 2 runs. Lin would finish the game 2-2 and pick up game MVP honors, following in the footsteps of his fellow brethren - Chin-Lung Hu (picked up game MVP honors in 2007).
Congrats to Lin!
Great read on the kid. And another one.
