Bienvenidos to All-Star Week in Miami!

Hometown star Giancarlo Stanton ready to shine in baseball’s summer classic

Miami gets its turn to showcase everything that it has to offer to a new crowd this upcoming week – Major League Baseball fanatics. Marlins Park will play host to their first midsummer baseball classic and it’s own local star is poised to get a full stadium of new believers!

Other than the shaky cam in the above video (sorry, the fans next to me went crazy over his no-doubt home run), this video perfectly illustrates why Stanton is the favorite going into the Home Run Derby on Monday night. Rookie New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is cut from the same cloth (although a lot bigger, 6 foot 7 cloth) as Stanton so that will be fun to watch Monday.

I visited several spots in Miami to check out their All-Star displays and how Miami’s culture will be influenced for this baseball tradition.
