Read some of what Joe Noga of cleveland.com wrote on the advice Guardians pitcher Shane Bieber gave Gimenez and Clase on their All-Star Game debuts.
Shane Bieber knows the butterflies that Andrés Giménez and Emmanuel Clase are feeling in Southern California this week. His advice for first-time All-Stars? Don’t be afraid to slow it down and suck it all up.
“Once you get there, I know everyone says it, but it’s just a matter of taking a deep breath and embracing the opportunity because all your hard work is paying off,” Bieber said. “These guys more than deserve it and I’m sure they will experience it more than just this once.”
It wasn’t quite the same when Bieber experienced his first All-Star game in 2019. This game took place at his home park and was special for several reasons. But the ace guard swept through all the emotions, feeling every nerve his young teammates feel this week as they walk the red carpet and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with baseball’s best.
Bieber recalled that playing progressive field in 2019 relieved a lot of the pressure on him and his family related to travel and coordinating travel, but once the stars arrived, it was a whirlwind.
“My first time, I was a latecomer, so I only had a few days,” Bieber said. “I’m happy for all of them that they’ve had a few weeks to prepare, settle in and figure things out.”
Bieber had three teammates – Francisco Lindor, Brad Hand and Carlos Santana – plus manager Terry Francona in his corner as he beat the team in the fifth inning to earn MVP honors and become the second Cleveland player to win the honor in Park received at his house.
Having family close by to help him enjoy every moment also made an impression on Bieber. He recalled moments after winning the MVP award and handing the trophy to his father Chris, beaming with pride as he spoke to reporters in the tunnels beneath the stadium.
“We’re not a family living in the past, but it still comes up in conversations,” said Shane Bieber. “It’s a lot of fun memories that we enjoy and we were lucky enough to share them with each other. I know I will forever cherish that and we will do it as a family, not just individually.”
Joining Giménez and Clase is José Ramírez, who is in his fourth All-Star game. Bieber said he’s confident this won’t be the last Midsummer Classic for any of the three, but said there’s still work to be done this season.
“It’s an opportunity to be recognized for all your hard work, the phenomenal first half these guys had,” Bieber said. “I’m sure they’re going to enjoy it and take it all in and make the most of it, but it’s still an all-star break. We still need to rest, regenerate and have work to do in the second half. They know that. But ultimately you have to deal with what’s in front of you, so I hope they enjoy it.”
