Sounds crazy? Perhaps, but Madison Bumgarner wants in.
He said this to ESPN's Buster Posey on Sunday after crushing some balls during batting practice at Busch Stadium.
And just in case that anybody (ie the Giants) would object to such an idea, Bumgarner had an answer for them:
"I mean, they had me ride a horse on the field, so if they trust me with something like that with 40-some-thousand people going crazy and I can't do baseball activities, that's a little bit different. We'll talk about it for sure. I'm not trying to say that this is a done deal or anything like that."There's no way that we can't have this happen, right? Who wouldn't love that? Sure there may actually be some injury concerns but you can't be completely protective of your guys at all of the time and besides, if he's already in the All-Star Game then who cares?
