Washington Nationals’ ace Max Scherzer consulted with the team and decided that after he experienced back stiffness over the last two starts, he would not pitch in the All-Star Game, though he would travel to Cleveland to enjoy the festivities at the 90th annual Midsummer Classic.

“It’s a really cool honor,” Scherzer said of his seventh straight All-Star selection, “it’s a really cool 48 hours, so for me I still wanted to go and partake in everything that’s there, and especially be there for the HR Derby and the game and I get to take my daughter, so it’s going to be fun.”

Try not to say, “Adorable” when looking at these:

Scherzer sure seems to be enjoying himself in Ohio. He’s all over the airwaves, talking about running out to celebrate a walk-off win in the eighth inning of Sunday’s game, why so many fly balls are leaving the yard this season (Hint: It’s the baseballs, dummy!), and more as he’s enjoyed the drama surrounding the All-Star Game that his teammate, Anthony Rendon, was joking, (before he bowed out with hamstring and quad issues), about wanting to avoid.

Some of the highlights of Scherzer’s tour of the media circuit:
