Brock Holt Pinch-Runs, Steals Base, Scores In All-Star Game Debut

It took Brock Holt a matter of seconds to make an impact on the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. After pinch-running for American League leadoff hitter Mike Trout in the seventh inning Tuesday night, Holt waited just one pitch before taking off for second base on a delayed steal. He slid in safely, becoming the fourth Boston Red Sox player ever to steal a base in an All...

Boston Red Sox fans, your 2015 MLB All-Star Game representative is on his way. Brock Holt departed for his first trip to the midsummer classic Monday morning with an entourage of one: his wife, Lakyn Pennington.

Brock Holt: The Do-It-All-Star

When I heard that Brock Holt was named to the AL All-Star team, I was a bit shocked. A superstar among utility players, Holt has surprised many by improving his unexpected play from last year, enough to even play among the best players in the league in Cincinnati. “BrockStar,” as he refers to himself in his Twitter handle, still doesn’t even have a guaranteed spot in the Red...

Brock Holt and His Hair are All Stars. Xander Has a Chance, Too.

In a season in which the Sox haven’t sniffed .500 for months, I didn’t expect a bunch of All Star game representatives to come from our team. But I was surprised to see superutilityman Brock Holt get the nod over Xander Bogaerts. In many ways, it makes sense; after all, the game counts for World Series home field advantage and having a guy on the bench who can play any position...

The Red Sox were matching outs with runs this Monday night in Toronto, playing 14 runs before the fifth inning was even over. But Brock Holt added insult to injury with this absolutely incredible catch of a Dan Johnson fly ball, showing that when it rains (even in a dome) it pours.
