Eric Trump Selected for First All-Star Game
Eric Trump will look to make baseball great again when he jets to South Beach as a member of this year's American League All-Star Team.
"It's a dream come true. I always wanted to be an All-Star," the President's son remarked. "Neat."
Selected to start in place of top vote-getter Aaron Judge in right field, the 33 year-old outfielder/infielder might also pitch a few innings, skipper Brad Mills says.
"Eric's complete inexperience makes him a legitimate dual threat in my mind," Mills reasoned. "It's a shame there's a designated hitter rule in this game."
Indeed, Trump's zero plate appearances and zero innings pitched in the majors or any other professional baseball league will make him the least established player to ever appear in the Mid-Summer Classic.
"We have enough guys on this team who know how to catch and hit and throw the ball," Mills said. "Maybe too many."
Meanwhile, President Trump, who is in Germany attending the G20 conference in Hamburg, expressed his excitement over his son's selection.
"AL just clinched home field in WS this year," he tweeted. "What is NL thinking? No wonder they never win titles! SAD."
