First Pitch: Did You Even Realize This Once Important Milestone Was Approaching?

The first MLB game I ever covered live was on June 24th, 2011. I was going up to cover the debut of Chase d’Arnaud, back when he was one of the top prospects in the system.

Clubs are well beyond the halfway point as far as games played, (SF is at 95, halfway is 81) it just sounds better to call it the start of the second half. Besides, it would be weird to play the All-Star game on the first day of summer.... actually, no it wouldn't! But that's another...

They’re second in the National League with 71 home runs, they’re third in runs scored (298), third in RBIs (287), and fourth in slugging (.404). They lead the Majors with 133 two-out runs.
