The All-Star game is back in Beantown after a 38-year break. Hit these sites to get a jump on the midsummer classic's festivities in sports-mad Boston.
On the league's official site scout the bios of tomorrow's stars, who will be showcased in the All-Star Futures game. Catch Sosa, McGwire and Co. live, fielding questions at press conferences or aiming at the Green Monster during batting practice. Scan the stands at Fenway with a Web cam during the home run derby or the game itself. And after the game, review All-Star '99 video highlights. Also, watch golden oldies, including the Bambino hitting the first All-Star four-bagger in '33 and Ted Williams tangling with the outfield wall at Comiskey Park in '50.
Peek into the warped psyche of a diehard Bosox fan whose site is dedicated to convincing the baseball world that trading Babe Ruth (above) in 1920 doomed Boston to perennial fadeouts.
Locked out of the game? Pour over this guide to Boston's best sports watering holes. Just don't expect Ted Danson to slide a pint across the bar to you at Who's on First or the Cask 'n Flagon.
