All-Star Pitcher Causes Uproar For Giving Derek Jeter An Easy Pitch

Posted July 16th, 2014 @ 5:15pm

St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright admitted that he "grooved" a fastball to Derek Jeter during last night's All Star Game during his first at-bat. Jeter lined a double to right field. Jeter went 2-2 in his 14th and final All-Star Game as the long-time Yankee captain is retiring at the end of the year. Right after Wainwright left the game, he admitted that he had given Jeter a few easy pitches because he deserved them. He then later apologized for admitting it.
