Brantley’s 2017 All Star Game Experience & #s
Michael Brantley took part in the 88th annual All Star Game on July 11, 2017, at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida. it was the second ASG of his career and i have all the details!

Prior to the All Star Break
July 6: before the Cleveland Indians game versus the San Diego Padres, Michael was interviewed by Andre Knott, the team’s in-game reporter for SportsTime Ohio, and an excerpt was posted in a youtube video on the FOX Sports Ohio channel.
Knott began by inquiring how satisfying is it that he made the All Star team after everything he’s gone through. “it’sa blessing, i’ll say that. it’s a lot of hard work, but it wasn’t just me. the upper management from Chris [Antonetti] to Chernie [Mike Chernoff] to all the doctors, the medical staff, even the clubbies for letting me in here on Saturdays and Sundays so i could get extra work in. that’s just very appreciated, i’m very humbled by it and very appreciative.”
