Congratulations to this year’s “All-Stars Among Us”, 30 inspirational individuals who will be recognized for outstanding community service at tonight’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
The pre-game tribute includes appearances by A-Listers Ben Affleck, Sheryl Crow, Harrison Ford, Salma Hayek, Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts and Charlize Theron.
Commissioner Bud Selig fondly recalls the 2009 celebration: “Last year’s All-Star Game in St. Louis was memorable for many reasons, but perhaps my favorite moment was the pre-game ceremony where we honored the People All-Stars Among Us.”
Each “All-Star” is affiliated with one of the 30 teams within the league. Representing our local Tampa Bay Rays is Bill Criswell of Windermere, FL who established “Home at Last” to give U.S. soldiers injured in Iraq a fresh start in life by giving them mortgage-free homes.
