COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WZZM) - Some of baseball's brightest young stars were in West Michigan Tuesday night, for a baseball game that turned out not to be close.
Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, and Prince Fielder at one time played in the Midwest League All-Star Classic. Fans hoped a star would be born at Fifth Third Ballpark Tuesday.
The all-star mascots were on hand, too, for a fun evening that featured a special presentation. The Whitecaps' Lew Chamberlin received the league's Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award, largely for getting the stadium rebuilt so quickly after the January fire.
The game's highlights are all from the West. In the fourth inning, Beloit's Boog Powell laced a double down the right field line, bringing two runs in to score, making it 5-0 for the West.
And the lead would increase moments later. Burlington's Chad Hinshaw left the yard for a two run homer to make it 7-0.
The East didn't get a hit until the eighth inning.
The West won 7-0.
