The Freeze has been one of the best parts of the 2017 MLB season. For the uninitiated, The Freeze is a former track star who is part of the Atlanta Braves’ ground crew and races fans wearing goggles and a blue track suit.

The fans get a massive head start, but The Freeze usually dominates them, and he gained nationwide fame after an opponent ate it during a race.

The Freeze didn’t lose a race this year until mid-June, but he’s lost some since then. And he actually lost in blowout fashion between innings of last night’s MLB All-Star Game.

This isn’t really a fair race, as the head start is arbitrary and is way too big for almost anyone, even a track star, to overcome. Plus, the opponent gets to run into their head start.

Maybe this blowout will force a reexamination of how The Freeze’s race is run, as long as he keeps getting to race.
