Here’s what Stevenson had to say about his performance, via Jackson’s article:
"“It was a cool experience. I’ve never been to California, so it was cool to see other guys from across the country,” Stevenson said. “Today was about having fun, playing with guys you don’t get to normally play with, so I was just relaxed in the box. The results, in the end, they don’t really matter, but they also kind of do — they’re something you can look at. I was just trying to have fun.”"
Fellow Nats prospect Max Schrock also earned All-Star Game MVP honors, his coming in the South Atlantic League All-Star Game.
