2000 ALL-STAR GAME

MWWL-ALL-STAR-LOGO-2000The 2000 Mid-West Winter League All-Star Game was held on Saturday Night, November 11th, 2000 in the home of the Hampton Huskies.

“Special. recognition is given here to Brandon Hogan for taking on the past All-Star Games Project as he has helped out playing these and catching up not only with the MWWL but also with some past MWBL All-Star Games.   Thank you very much Brandon for helping out with these projects.  I hope you enjoy the Mid-West Winter & Mid-West Baseball League as much as we have the past 25 Years!”

The century has turned over to 2000 and it is that time again for the best of the best of the MWWL to face off in the annual All-Star game. This year the N.L. were our gracious hosts. But just like the 1990s, the N.L. has decided that Randy Johnson will get the start. We’ve seen over the year that it has not worked out well, he might be the best pitcher in the N.L. but maybe let’s move him to a different inning? On the flip side, the A.L. started the ridiculous Pedro Martinez. No big deal, he only went 26-3 with a 1.62 ERA while facing the best hitters to ever grace this league. Let’s turn to the actual game. Continue reading

1999 ALL-STAR GAME

MWWL-ALL-STAR-LOGO-1999The 1999 Mid-West Winter League All-Star Game was held on Saturday Night, November 6th, 1999 in the home of the Hollywood Vampires.

“Special recognition is given here to Brandon Hogan & Greg “Sarge” Stauffer for taking on the past All-Star Games Project as they will be playing these out and catching up not only the MWWL but some past MWBL All-Star Games.   Thank you very much Brandon & Sarge for helping out with these projects.  I hope you enjoy the Mid-West Winter & Mid-West Baseball League as much as we have in the past 25 Years!”

We made it to the final all-star game of the 90s here in the Mid-West Winter League and coming into the matchup the American League has the decade lead 5-4 over the National League and are winners of the last two. 1998 was an absolute classic but what about 1999? The A.L. trotted out Kevin Brown to start the game for the second time in as many years and the N.L. is going to the well AGAIN with Randy Johnson to start. What is the definition of insanity? Some say it is just doing the same thing repeatedly expecting a different result. Well, that seems to be the case for the N.L. The struggles of Randy Johnson have been discussed multiple years in these games. The hope of the coaching staff is that this was finally the year he could break the trend of bad outings.
