Los TeBros' AL Starting Lineup

ST11’s All Star Selections

July 22nd, 2012 is when the 83rd Major League Baseball All Star Game will be held at Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals. While the first time All Stars to 15 time All Stars receive the honor to represent their respective leagues, the Midsummer Classic is not just another game that will be all fun and games. Yes, these players deserve to enjoy their All Star honors (rightfully so), but what’s at stake will be more important to some than others.

Since the 2003 All Star Game, the winning league receives home field advantage in the World Series. Gaining home field advantage will be very important for any team playing in the World Series, so each league will need to consist of the most deserving players based on this season’s production.
