Every major sports league has an all-star game, but few are quite like the MLB All-Star Game. Unlike any other league, which hosts the games as an exhibition, the baseball event is significant because the winning league gets home field advantage for the World Series, and anybody who watches baseball knows how important that can be. Although there's some disagreement over whether the game should count, everyone can agree that the MLB All-Star Game has provided some of the best moments in baseball history. As the event heads to Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium for the July 10 game, it might be good to take a look at this year's squads and grab your MLB All-Star Game tickets.
The American League dominated the All-Star Game for much of the 2000s, and with a potent lineup headed to Kansas City, there's no reason why they can't capture home field advantage once again. A quick look at the starting lineup reveals it is packed with members of the Texas Rangers, and why shouldn't it be? The Rangers have been the AL champions the last two years. Catcher Mike Napoli, third baseman Adrian Beltre and outfielder Josh Hamilton will all be starting next Tuesday. Pitchers Joe Nathan and Matt Harrison also made the team. Though Texas grabbed headlines for their All-Star selections, the New York Yankees also had a good showing. Curtis Granderson and second baseman Robinson Cano got voted in, as did shortstop Derek Jeter, who will be making his 13th appearance. Rounding out the lineup are Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista, Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder and Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz.
The AL team was dominated by familiar faces such as Jeter, Hamilton and Ortiz, but the National League squad is full of newcomers. Young San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey, who is in the middle of a great season, earned the most votes of any other NL player. His teammate Melky Cabrera is also a starter, making his first appearance at the All-Star Game. The NL team includes a number of other players making their first starts. Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla has been to the game before, but never in the starting lineup, and the same is true for St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal. The NL's strength is in its pitching, with New York Mets knuckleball sensation R.A. Dickey and perfect game pitcher Matt Cain leading the way.
