Season 34 All-Star Recap

The Mid-season Classic has come and gone for Cobbfather Season 34.  Let's take a look back and see who made this season's teams!

The AL team was headlined by 10-time All-Star Francisco Aramboles of Cheyenne, who has put together another spectacular season which should see him eclipse the 3,000 strikeout mark!  11 AL squad members are first-time All-Stars.  Charlotte, Cheyenne and Salem all tied for the most All-Stars in the AL with 5.

No player on the NL roster is making more than their 4th All-Star Appearance, and it's Nashville leading the way with 6 players making the squad.

Salem CF Raul Galvez pitched out a shutout in the Home Run Derby finals, winning 5-0.  He then crushed 3 more bombs in the All-Star game leading the AL to a 12-7 win, earning himself All-Star Game MVP honors in the process.  The Futures Game was a hearty display of pitching prowess with the World Team winning 1-0.  Ironically, the MVP was rewarded to an offensive player, Cleveland Catcher Roosevelt Schoeneweis, who homered to account for the game's only run.

Here are this season's complete All Star Rosters!
