7/9 All-Star text messages
Marlon Byrd has been contacting his former teammates such as Michael Young who have been to All-Star Games on what to bring, so he’s ready for Tuesday’s event in Anaheim. What is the Cubs’ lone All-Star looking forward to?
“Just being in the clubhouse, seeing the guys,” Byrd said. “Just being with the All-Stars — that’s the whole thing.”
Byrd knows to bring a few items to have players sign them. He’s prepared for anything.
“I’m a big boy,” he said. “I can figure it out when I get there.”
