2015 All-Star Stitches #9: Manny Machado (via Tomahawk Chop)

22 02 2016

This is the 9th card I got in my crazy idea to collect all of the cards in the All-Star Stitches set from 2015 Topps Update.  As a reminder, I went to the All-Star game and Home Run Derby in Cincinnati.  These cards that have swatches from the Monday practice festivities.

Machado is the 3rd participant in the Home Run Derby I’ve added to this collection (Anthony Rizzo, Albert Pujols).

Player:  Manny Machado

2015 Topps Update All-Star Stitch Machado

Card number:  STIT-MMA

How I got the card:  trade with Andrew of Tomahawk Chop.  Thanks for the trade, Andrew!

Player:  Manny Machado

Position:  Third Base

How he made the roster:  Machado was voted in by the players as the reserve at 3rd base

This was his 2nd All-Star selection.

First half stat line:  .298/19/48, .361 OBP, .525 SLG

Home Run Derby:  Machado was the 5-seed in the derby for the 18 homers he had as of July 7th.  He lost to Joc Pederson, 13-12, in the first round.

All-Star game:  0-1.  Machado pinch hit for starter Josh Donaldson in the top of the 5th, hitting a deep fly off of Clayton Kershaw that was caught in left field.  He doubled off of Francisco Rodriguez in his second at bat, scoring Brock Holt to extend the AL’s lead to 4-2.  He came around to score on a Prince Fielder single.  Mike Moustakas pinch hit for him in the top of the 9th.
