Tyler Clippard is making his first-ever All-Star appearance this season, and whenever that happens, you have to do everything you can to make the experience worthwhile. So, as a start, Clippard has decided to show up in one heck of a ride. Via Holden Kushner:
Tyler Clippard just told me that Troy Tulowitzki offered him a ride on a privte plane to get to the All Star Game. Clippard flying w/ Tulo.
Here's his direct quote (audio here):
"Fortunately, Mr. Tulowitzki here offered me a ride with him, and it was a really nice gesture. I'll be looking forward to heading out to Arizona with him and taking in all the festivities," he said.
Kushner asked him to elaborate, and he responded as follows:
"In a private plane," he said. "I don't know [what we're doing.' It's my first go-around with all of this. We'll see."
Here's hoping Tulowitzki and the rest of his teammates show him a good time.
