Credit: MLB/TV Weekly The 85th Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at Target Field in Minneapolis, MN, home of the Minnesota Twins.  This year’s All-Star Game managers are Mike Matheny (St. Louis Cardinals) and John Farrell (Boston Red Sox), who earned the honor by being the pennant winning manager in their respective leagues in 2013.  The All-Star Game starters and full rosters were revealed on Sunday and featured 24 first-time participants.  As always, all 30 teams are represented by at least one player.

NL Fan Vote                                                                                                         1B: Justin Morneau, Rockies 1B: Anthony Rizzo, Cubs 3B: Anthony Rendon, Nationals 3B: Casey McGahee, Marlins OF: Justin Upton, Braves AL Fan Vote                                                                                               LHP: Dallas Keuchel, Astros RHP: Corey Kluber, Indians RHP: Garret Richards, Angels RHP: Rick Porcello, Tigers LHP: Chris Sale, White Sox The Oakland Athletics led the AL with six All-Stars, while four teams topped the roster with four in the NL (Dodgers, Brewers, Cardinals, and Reds). As expected, 40 year-old Derek Jeter was voted by the fans to the game for the 14th and final time (leading all veterans) with Miguel Cabrera (9) as the next closest. New Athletics acquisition Jeff Samardzija was named to the NL All-Star team via player vote, however he will not be on the AL squad. In the American League, eight different teams are represented as starters defensively, a big difference from the 1990′s and 2000′s when it was seemingly three Red Sox and Yankees each season. We correctly predicted eight out of ten first-time All-Stars earlier this week, with the final two on the last five ballot. Notable veteran omissions include David Ortiz, Albert Pujols, Dustin Pedroia, Josh Hamilton, Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Zimmerman, and Prince Fielder. - David Whitlock Be sure to like our Facebook Page Check out Sports-Kings YouTube Channel Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post 2014 MLB All-Star starters and rosters announced appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
