Germany: North Wins All-Star Game 6-3

The German Baseball League held its annual All-Star Game yesterday in Bonn. For the first time in its history the game was streamed online through Legionaere TV.

The festivities started off with the home run derby where 10 players competed for this years crown. The weather wasn’t the greatest for a home run derby with light rain off and on, but the players slugged on as Brent Buffa of the HSV Stealers was crowned 2013 Home Run Derby Champion after blasting five.

After the North Division was successful in bringing home the home run derby crown, they continued up with a nice win over the South in the All-Star Game. The North took an early 3-0 lead and went on to a 6-3 victory.

North starting pitcher Charles Olson, of the host Bonn Capitals, pitched great holding the South at bay during his time on the hill. He would go on to capture the the Best Pitcher Award.

Florian Nehring, Bonn Capitals, was named the MVP. While the South’s Chris Beck, Stuttgart Reds, was named the Best Hitter. Beck had a good day despite being on the losing end of things. He finished third in the home run derby. He then scored the first run for the South after a double and later would drive in a run.

The North held onto the lead despite a late inning rally from the South to win.
