All -Star Notes: Derby ratings down

While everyone is raving about the show Vladimir Guerrero put on during Home Run Derby, TV execs are shaking their heads. Monday’s slugfest at AT&T Park drew a 5.1 rating on ESPN, down 6 percent from last year’s 5.4 Derby rating in Pittsburgh. ESPN says an estimated 6.8 million viewers tuned in.

Making the right calls until the end

With the quiet dignity in which he went about his job as a baseball umpire, Bruce Froemming worked his final All-Star Game. The 37-year veteran is retiring following this season. “I say I’ve had a great run,” Froemming said. “You’ve got to step away sometime and I thought the timing was right and MLB has gone the extra step to make it an easy transition and whatever I do in the future, probably would be with MLB to help out in some capacity.”
