SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game rosters announced

Rosters for the 2014 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, which will be played on Sunday, July 13th at Target Field, were announced by Major League Baseball earlier this afternoon on MLB Network's "The Rundown" and MLB.com. 

The SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, which is now in its 16th year, features the top Minor League prospects competing in a nine-inning contest as part of Taco Bell All-Star Sunday. The U.S. Team, which has won each of the last four contests, leads the all-time series, 9-6. The game will begin at 5:00 p.m. (ET)/4:00 p.m. (CT) and can be viewed live on MLB Network and MLB.com. Featured on MLB Network for the first time, the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game will be called by Matt Vasgersian, Sean Casey and Heidi Watney, along with MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo.

SiriusXM, the Official Satellite Radio Partner of Major League Baseball, will provide live play-by-play coverage of the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game on MLB Network Radio (XM channel 89; Sirius channel 209) in addition to SiriusXM's other comprehensive live coverage from Minneapolis. The game will also be available to SiriusXM subscribers on the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smart phones and mobile devices and online at SiriusXM.com. Taco Bell All-Star Sunday is the first of three days of All-Star events at Target Field, culminating with the 85th All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 15th.

Major League Baseball, in conjunction with the Major League Baseball Scouting Bureau, MLB.com, Baseball America and the 30 Major League Clubs, selected the 25 players currently on each team. Each Major League organization is represented and players from all full-season Minor Leagues were eligible to participate. Complete Futures Game rosters, prospect analysis and rankings can be found at MLB.com/pipeline. 

The teams feature 15 former first round draft picks (U.S. - 12; World - 3), six players picked in Compensation Round A (U.S. - 5; World - 1) and five second round picks (U.S. - 4; World - 1). Among the 15 first round picks, seven were selected in the 2013 Draft, four in the 2012 Draft, three in the 2011 Draft and one in the 2010 Draft. The rosters are highlighted by a pair of Cubs prospects, including the U.S. Team's Kris Bryant, who was the second overall selection of the 2013 Draft, and the World Team's Javier Baez, who was the ninth overall pick of the 2011 Draft.

The World Team features players from eight different countries and territories outside the 50 United States. The Dominican Republic is represented by nine players, followed by Puerto Rico (7), Venezuela (3) and Colombia (2). Canada, Cuba, Mexico and Panama are each represented by one player on the World Team. The seven Puerto Rican players represent the most from the island in a single Futures Game, eclipsing the previous mark of three set in 2000 and matched in 2001.

The SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game will last nine innings, and in the event of a tie, a 10th inning will be played. The game will not go longer than 10 innings, regardless of the score. Players and coaches will be outfitted in special SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game caps and jerseys.

The Minor League Baseball Umpires who will work the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game are Travis Eggert (home plate) of the Texas League, Jansen Visconti (first base) of the Eastern League, Nate White (second base) of the Texas League and Matt McCoy (third base) of the Southern League.

One hundred and fifteen players (115) have competed in both the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game and the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. In 2013, 37 Major League All-Stars were alumni of the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game. Twelve players - Jose Altuve, Adam Dunn, Neftali Feliz, Jose Fernandez, Jason Heyward, Bryce Harper, Francisco Liriano, Evan Longoria, Manny Machado, Jean Segura, Ben Sheets and Geovany Soto - appeared in the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game and were named to the All-Star Game in the following season.

The Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF) announced today its 2014 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game "BTF Rookie Line-Up," featuring nine youth players from Minnesota-based baseball and softball organizations that have been BTF grant recipients in the past. To celebrate its 15th anniversary, BTF invited children from seven organizations to take the field during the pre-game ceremony. The children, who will be joined by the U.S. Team players, were nominated for participation by their youth organization.

This year's "BTF Rookie Line-Up" includes 10-year-old Dylan Jarvi (Bemidji Youth Baseball League); nine-year-old Travis (TJ) Logan, Jr. (Friends of St. Paul Baseball); 13-year-old Calvin James (Friends of St. Paul Baseball); 14-year-old Mary Bice (Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board); 13-year-old Peter Biros (Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board); 11-year-old Joshua Lindgren (East Metro Miracle League); 13-year-old Ben Zappa (Owatonna Huskies Bullpen Club, Inc.); 12-year-old Haakon Westermeyer (Richfield Youth Baseball); and 15-year-old Selm "Sonny" Wadena, Jr. (Boys & Girls Club of the White Earth Reservation).

"The Baseball Tomorrow Fund is pleased to celebrate our 15th anniversary during 2014 All-Star Week in Minneapolis. Minnesota has a strong network of youth baseball and softball leagues and programs, and we have enjoyed working with these seven organizations to help provide quality programs and facilities to young players across the state," said Cathy Bradley, Executive Director of the Baseball Tomorrow Fund. "We extend special thanks to the Minnesota Twins, a leader in youth baseball and softball outreach, and look forward to our continued involvement in this area for years to come."

The Baseball Tomorrow Fund, a joint initiative of Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association, promotes the game by awarding grants to youth baseball and softball programs and facilities. Since 2000, BTF has awarded more than $250,000 to Minnesota-based organizations, including Bemidji Youth Baseball League (2014; $30,000.00), Friends of St. Paul Baseball (2009; $124,590.00), Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (2003, 2009; $27,900.00), Miracle League of Minnesota (2007, 2008; $10,000.00), Owatonna Huskies Bullpen Club, Inc. (2012; $45,134.00) and Richfield Public Schools (2005; $12,936.85).

The 2014 All-Star Game will be played at Target Field on Tuesday, July 15th. The 85th All-Star Game will be televised nationally by FOX Sports; in Canada by Rogers Sportsnet and RDS; and worldwide by partners in more than 200 countries via MLB International's independent feed. ESPN Radio and ESPN Radio Deportes will provide exclusive national radio coverage of the All-Star Game. MLB Network, MLB.com and SiriusXM also will provide comprehensive All-Star Week coverage.
