SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The Major League Baseball All Star Game has come and gone and this year, the San Francisco Giants played a key role in the outcome.

Outfielder Melky Cabrera was named Most Valuable Player, Matt Cain was the winning pitcher and Pablo Sandoval got in the key blow in the five-run first inning with a bases-clearing triple.

John Madden told the KCBS morning crew that in his opinion, baseball’s Midsummer Classic will always be the most competitive of any of the professional sports.

“Baseball has the best all-star game. They really do,” he said. “I was watching (the game) and thinking, what can we do in football that we can copy from baseball to make our all-star game better. Because ours is the worst.”

Madden said it has a lot to do with the game and in other sports like football and basketball, the players are not really concerned about defense. In baseball, while having fun, the players are all playing hard because they have to.
