2012 MLB All-Star Game: 'Mind-Blowing' Experience For Wade Miley

Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley might be a bit star struck at the MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City, and with good reason. The rookie had a chance to hang out with his childhood hero Chipper Jones, now his teammate on the National League squad.

Miley mentioned before that he had no expectations going in, and he's clearly just enjoying the experience. He had this to say on Monday, via MLB.com:

"It just blows my mind," Miley said. "On the bus, I was a like a little puppy dog looking around at everybody. I'm just trying to cherish it. You never know if this is going to happen again, so you have try to take it all in."
