Last night  Major League Baseball hosted this year's All Star Game, with the the American League besting the National League, 2-1.  

But in many ways, it was different than in the past.  The winning side no longer got home-field advantage in the World Series, so really, there wasn't much at stake. 

Did that make for a game that was lighter and more fun? Many people think so. 

And is this how the MLB can woo back some younger fans? A Martinez is joined by Andy and Brian Kamenetzky to talk about this, and a lot more.
