The MLB All-Star game is on July 11, and the rosters are just about complete. There are some players making their first all-star team and others who seem to be there just about every year. This year’s festivities will take place in Miami at Marlins Park. The stadium was new in 2012 and is ready to host its first big event. The All-Star game is a great time for a city to show off and for the players to relax. The home run derby promises to be entertaining, but also be sure not to miss the All-Star game itself on July 11 at 8 PM on FOX.  Let’s break down the roster by team and position.

Rosters:

American League

This team is almost more noteworthy for who is not playing than who is. Mike Trout was having an MVP type season before he got injured. His star power will be missed. Aaron Judge is probably the biggest draw on the team, but Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa will also be a fun double play combo. The American League’s bullpen is also stacked with Craig Kimbrel and Dellin Betances dominating hitters all season.

The National League team is full of Rockies and Nationals and for good reason. Both of those teams were among the best in the league until the Rockies started their recent skid.
