The Houston Astros might actually be the most hated team in the history of sports. 

Just moments ago, the All-Star Game participants were introduced. 

When the announcer announced the names of Justin Verlander, Kyle Tucker and Framber Valdez, a chorus of boos rang down on them from the fans. 

Yikes. 

Major League Baseball and the Houston Astros have no one to blame but themselves. The Astros, of course, cheated their way to a World Series. 

And how did Major League Baseball officials respond? By barely punished the AL West franchise. 

The combination of both events made the Astros the most hated team in baseball. And no, the fans aren't going to feel sorry about it. 

Astros players will be booed until the end of time - or at least as long as they're playing in the big leagues.
