Season 23 All-Star Coverage

The All-Star break is upon us!  Quite interestingly, Dover, Atlanta, Charlotte and Boston are all tied for the World's best record at the break.  The second half will be quite the battle.

But for now, it's time to look at the All-Star rosters.  In the AL, Elston Lloyd is making his impressive 9th All-Star appearance, while Victor Almanzar and Roger Hermida are each making their 6th.  Boston and Louisville, each have 5 players on the team, while 14 players made their first All-Star game.  One notable exclusion this season was James Haselman who had made the previous 11 All-Star teams.  He is still pitching well, but a hard luck 5-9 record likely kept him out of his 12th straight All-Star game.

In the NL, Mendy Kondou made his 9th All-Star team and Norman LaPorta is making his 8th appearance, his first with his new team, Houston.  Even though they no longer have LaPorta, Dover still led the way with 5 All-Stars.  10 players will make their All-Star game debut in the NL. 

Here are the complete All-Star rosters!
