MLB All-Star Game Tonight

The starting pitchers for the All-Star Game will be New York Mets ace Matt
Harvey and Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer. Harvey will be the first
pitcher to start an All-Star Game in his home park since Roger Clemens for
Houston in 2004. The young Mets right-hander is 7-2 with a 2.35 ERA and an NL-
best 147 strikeouts in 19 starts this season. He will be the first Mets
All-Star starting pitcher since Dwight Gooden in 1988. Scherzer is 13-1 this
season, suffering his first loss of the campaign on Saturday against Texas,
and is second in the AL with 152 strikeouts with an ERA of 3.19 in 19 starts.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
