Shane Bieber Named ASG MVP As AL Tops NL 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jul 10, 2019 11:30 am

Shane Bieber was named the MVP of Tuesday night\'s All-Star Game as the American League edged the National League 4-3.

Bieber earned the honor by striking out the side in the fifth inning at Progressive Field.

He is the third player in All-Star Game history to win the MVP award in his home ballpark, joining Pedro Martinez at Fenway Park in 1999 and Sandy Alomar Jr. also in Cleveland in 1997.

\"I really didn\'t know what to think,\" Bieber said. \"Kinda lost all feeling in my body. But it\'s an incredible feeling now. Now that it\'s kind of sinking in, just to be able to do it in front of the hometown crowd in my first All-Star Game is definitely not something I expected.\"

Bieber wasn\'t named to the All-Star team until Friday, when he replaced Mike Minor, who wasn\'t eligible to play because he pitched Sunday.
