One of the highlights of the All-Star break each year is the celebrity softball game, which features famous personalities as well as legends from the host team. The folks over at NESN Daily decided to put together a Red Sox old-timers game of their own, with Mike Mutnansky and Uri Berenguer playing the role of general manager on opposing squads.
