Trey Mancini may not be an All-Star this season, but two of his AL counterparts made sure his name was mentioned during the Stand Up To Cancer intermission.
In between innings, the All-Star Game was paused to allow players, coaches and fans to stand and recognize people in their lives affected by cancer. Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins was shown holding a sign that said “Boom Boom Trey,” honoring his teammate who missed the 2020 season undergoing chemotherapy after being diagnosed with colon cancer.
Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. wrote Mancini’s name down as well.
Mancini did get to participate in the All-Star Week festivities with an underdog run to the championship round of the Home Run Derby on Monday. He entered the All-Star Break hitting .256 with 16 home runs and a .791 OPS in his first season since being declared cancer-free.
