182 Packs of Baseball - 097 - All-Star Breakin

Here is the All-Star Edition of 182 Packs! I will be posting additional packs for each run scored!

If I've checked correctly, the only 2012 All-Star from the pack is Cabrera! That's already a bonus prize for Tigers/Cabrera participants. Way to go!

Wow! The NL starts things off right away. They must have got the message about the breaks.
