No excuse for this absurd omission. Even the ridiculous rule requiring every team to be represented (Are there really ANY "All-Stars" playing for the Tigers, Mets, Padres or Devil Rays?) does not excuse Dontrelle's absence.
But NOOOOOO!!!!!!Dontrelle stays home - and baseball strikes out again. That was the case until today. After Jeff's Journal went to press it was announced Dontrelle Willis will take his place on the All-Star game roster. Willis replaces the Dodgers' Kevin Brown.
All-Star Sports Week will bring hundreds of athletes and thousands of coaches to Montgomery next week.
All of the sports - except football - now feature seniors-to-be rather than those who have already graduated. That's why you'll see college coaches at the basketball games, and major league scouts at the baseball game. It's their chance to evaluate and recruit.

The Blue-Gray All-Star football classic, should it return, occupies Cramton Bowl, and much of the city's resources and attention during this time.
So why not play the All-Star game a few days before Christmas - before the Blue-Gray stars arrive?
That would explain why the Montgomery Lions Club toured TSU's Movie Gallery Stadium last week.
The Miami marketing guru hired to bring back the game told me it's premature to assume the Blue-Gray will return.
