2011 MLB All-Star Game - Cliff Lee from the stretch

We attended the 2011 MLB All-Star Game at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. Roy Halladay handed the ball over to Cliff Lee for the top of the third, and I mean that literally, because the National League All-Star team is just Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels, all trying to occupy as many places as they can. And after three innings, the Phillies are working on a perfect game, as the AL squad has gone nine up and nine down. Lee threw 13 pitches in the 1-2-3 frame, inducing three grounders to Halladay, who threw to Hamels for the putouts.

Clifton Phifer "Cliff" Lee (born August 30, 1978) is a Major League Baseball left-handed starting pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. Lee has also played for the Cleveland Indians, the Seattle Mariners and the Texas Rangers.


Lee's repertoire features a four-seam fastball, two-seam fastball, a cut fastball, slider, as well as a circle changeup and a knuckle curve. Lee won the American League Cy Young Award in 2008.[1]
