10 Ways Latinos Truly Represented At The All-Star Game

The 2017 Major League Baseball All-Star Game took place last night at Marlins Park in Miami, and Latino players represented big time.

Yes, there were some hilarious, playful moments, but there were also some major highlights. The American League won 2-1, thanks to Dominican pelotero Robinson Canó’s 10th inning homerun.

Yadier Molina made history and had a great time doing it.

The catcher hit a home run last night in the sixth inning, making him the first Cardinal to hit a home run in the All-Star Game since 1974. He was also the MVP of the night!

Molina also had blinged-out catcher’s gear, and some people totally clowned him for it.

Oh, come on, he looks great.

Molina also made fun of Bryce Harper’s “epic hair-flip” by doing his own!

Classic! We can totally see this catching on in future games.

Wait, there’s more: Molina also made history by taking a picture DURING A GAME!

It all happened after Seattle Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz asked Molina to take a picture with his phone.

And here’s the actual photo: Yep, that’s Nelson Cruz and umpire Joe West.

We really know how to take advantage of a moment.

Because the game was at the Marlins stadium, the late Jose Fernandez was on many players’ minds. Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals wore these cleats to honor Fernandez:

These kicks need to be in a museum.

Latino baseball legends were also honored during the first pitch.

Latino players recognized last night included Hall of Famers Roberto Alomar, Luis Aparicio, Rod Carew, Orlando Cepeda, Juan Marichal, Pedro Martinez, Tony Perez and Ivan Rodriguez. The late Roberto Clemente was also represented by his wife and MLB Goodwill Ambassador Vera Clemente, along with sons Roberto Jr., Luis and Roberto Enrique.

Of course, people poked fun at the height of Houston Astros second baseman José Altuve.

Last night he wasn’t the shortest person at the game.

Altuve (5’6″) was taller than this guy! Al fin!

And for whatever reason, people couldn’t stop touching Adrian Beltre’s hair.

The Texas Rangers player was clearly not having it.

Thanks for an entertaining game, guys!

Major Lazer Music Video Is For All Those Kids That Fantasized About Chasing Their Musical Dreams


Major Lazer Music Video Is For All Those Kids That Fantasized About Chasing Their Musical Dreams

Camila Cabello’s solo career shows no signs of slowing down.

Major Lazer’s new song, “Know No Better,” featuring Camila Cabello, Travis Scott, and Quavo finally has a music video and it is all about fantasy meeting reality. The video shows a young dude in two situations. One timeline features the guy living a super fancy and expensive lifestyle with personal trainers, gold-plated everything, and a personal driver. The other timeline features the teenage boy living in a normal home with a sister who likes to antagonize him and dreams of becoming something bigger. According to Idolator, this concept was born out of the director of the music video Philip Andelman finally achieving his own daydream: directing a video for Major Lazer.

“It’s always been a dream of mine to work with [Major Lazer] and be included in their insane canon,” Andelman told Idolator. “Which is where the idea for the video started, with a daydream. I used to space out all through high school about being the sickest guitarist in the world to impress girls. I thought it could be fun to do a video that married a kid’s daydream of being a Major Lazer backup dancer with the reality of quotidian ass-kickings and unbearable siblings.”

If you are hoping to see Cabello in the video, you need to keep your eyes peeled. Unfortunately for hardcore Camelizers, she and the rest of the musicians are in the video for a very short amount of time. If you blink at the wrong time, you might miss her.
