MLB All-Star Game

MLB All-Star Starters Announced

Everyone knows uSports’ feelings on the MLB All-Star game. While both basketball and hockey’s versions are entertaining — football’s Pro Bowl is a joke — baseball’s All-Star game holds weight because it matters. As previously mentioned, the winner gets home field advantage in the World Series, which is a big deal when considering the importance of a home crowd.

And with the festivities beginning in less than a week and the game exactly seven days away, the All-Star starters have been officially announced via MLB.

American League Roster

Now as most know, the World Series teams’ managers will lead their respective league on July 14. So the American League’s skipper will be the Kansas City Royals Ned Yost. And his roster is absolutely stacked.

Starters
