Did anyone else watch the player introductions before the All-Star Game? I really enjoyed watching all of the Hall of Famers who were in attendance. Good to see those guys.

However, am I the only one disappointed that three members of the Big Red Machine, plus another former Red, failed to appear for the ceremony?

    Perez showed up, so it’s Bench, Morgan, Seaver…who am I forgetting? Oh – Sparky?

    I did hear Marty say that Bench has a prior commitment for a golf charity benefit in Minnesota, I believe it was, and that Morgan was doing radio.

    I understand Bench’s commitment, but it would seem that something could’ve been worked out by ESPN for Morgan to attend.

    If it’s Sparky, that’s not a big deal to me. At his age, I don’t expect him to show up for everything.

    It was strange that there were quite a few of the HOFers missing. I’m not sure if there’s something more behind that or not

    Chad-I am with you. Very disappointed. Radio? That is a very lame excuse.

    DevilsAdvocate, Seaver never appears as a Red unless in Cincinnati. If he would have been there, he would have been a Mut. It was great to see Tony. He deserves this kind of national recognition.
