There was a time when the All-Star break was just that, a break. It gave the players a break and the best of the best played in a single game which was more or less for fun and/or bragging rights between two leagues. Over the years the All-Star break and game have expanded, not in length the game still goes nine innings and the break is still Monday through Thursday, but in all that it entails. The game now gives the winning league home field advantage for the World Series and attractions like the Home Run Derby have been added. 2014 marks the biggest and most expansive All-Star break Major League Baseball has ever seen.
The 2014 All-Star break is that is now being called “All-Star Week,” began Friday and will end Wednesday and Thursday when everyone from players to fans will have the two days off. The players may not be on break until the last game ends on Sunday but the fans are. This year the fans will get the full MLB experience.
