The Royals Rule The All Star Game

Illustration for article titled The Royals Rule The All Star Game

This is Gil Meche, the Kansas City Royals' "All-Star" for last night's game. Like Albert Pujols, he didn't get in the game. For Royals fans, this is the furthest thing from unusual. Their All-Star history is so checkered that the last Royals to get a hit in an All-Star game was ... Bo Jackson.
