It’s All-Star Break and the SI cover features baseball this week. But what it does not feature on it’s cover is a current All-Star. Instead, Philly’s own Carlos Ruiz will be gracing the cover this week along with a story of how he is the luckiest person in the world right now.
With a fantastic photo of Ruiz from the Phillies’ trip to St. Louis at the end of June and a teaser that reads “Phillies rotation is making history, and Carlos Ruiz has the best seat in the house,” the national love for the Phillies is well deserved for the team with the best record at the break.
Here is Ruiz’s cover along with the actual photo used (makes a fantastic phone and computer background, by the way).
