Inge also said Thursday he will compete in Monday's Home Run Derby.
"I figured it would be something to have fun with," he said. "I watched the Derby more as a kid than the game. (The game) was too long."
Prepare to be amazed, world.
Given the prevalence with which the "big stars" have generally declined to participate in the Derby in recent years, it is nice to see somebody genuinely excited about the taking part in the event. On behalf of baseball fans everywhere, thank you.
UPDATE: Apparently MLB.com was on top of this late last night. Here's a whole story on Inge "likely" in the Derby.
