Season 20 All Star Coverage

The Season 20 All Star Game is upon us, coincidentally on the same day as the MLB All Star Game.  The AL team is led by 5 Colorado Springs players and 4 Tampa Bay players.   One of those Tampa Bay players being James Haselman who is making his 9th consecutive All Star appearance to start his career.  Amazing!  Honorable mention goes to Yamid Montanez, who is making his 8th appearance and Elston Lloyd, who is making his 7th.  13 players on the AL squad are making their first All Star appearance.

On the NL side, the team is led by 6 players from the top team in the most recent rankings, Dover, which seems appropriate.  5 players from Minnesota made it, followed by Little Rock with 4.  Andres Candelaria has the most appearances for this season's NL squad, this being his 8th. Jung Hasegawa and Al James are making their 7th appearances.  12 players on the NL squad are making their first appearance.

Here are the complete rosters, although home field in the World Series is not on the line, it should still be a great game!
