MLB All Star Selections

The rosters for the American League and National League are released! These certain players have deserved and been the best players on their teams this year and will represent their teams and league in the 86th MLB All Star Game, which will take place July 14th on a tuesday night with first pitch at 7:00 pm. The manager for the AL is Ned Yost (Royals) and NL manager is Bruce Bochy (Ginats). I think Chris Archer should get the nod to start the game for the American League and Max Scherzer for the National League.
