Texas Rangers

Backbackbackbackback ... to the 1995 All-Star Game Right Here in Texas

 Lyle Lovett sang the National Anthem. Nolan Ryan threw out the first pitch. Joe DiMaggio was on hand. Barry Bonds and Cal Ripken Jr. opposed each other.

And, in the NL's 3-2 win at the brand new Ballpark in Arlington, the Marlins' Jeff Conine was the MVP for his pinch-hit homer.

Somehow 16 years ago feels like only 16 days ago.
