All-Star Game retro-tainment

Jun 23, 2009, 9:59 AM EDT

Baseball has taken to staging charity concerts during the All-Star break. This year it’s Sheryl Crow:

Major League Baseball will host Missouri native and nine-time Grammy
Award winner Sheryl Crow for the 2009 Major League Baseball All-Star
Charity Concert presented by Pepsi on Saturday, July 11 under the
iconic Gateway Arch at the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. The
concert, which will be free to fans, is the culmination of a day-long
celebration of baseball history and will feature a $1 million donation
by Major League Baseball to Stand Up To Cancer.

In addition, fans will be able to make donations to Stand Up To
Cancer after the concert. The concert will be streamed live on MLB.com,
the official website of Major League Baseball, and fans watching the
live stream will be encouraged to donate to Stand Up To Cancer.

Last year it was Bon Jovi, which means instead of being 20 years behind
the times, baseball is now only 15 years behind the times. If form
holds, next year it will be Ricky Martin!

I’m kidding of course. Good for baseball for doing this and good for
Crow for donating her time and vocal cords to a worthy cause.
