The All-Star break begins with the MLB Futures Game. The best and brightest minor leaguers will play on Sunday.
The 2012 MLB Futures Game will take place on Sunday, unofficially kicking off the All-Star break. The best minor leaguers will square off, as a team of U.S.-born standouts takes on foreign-born prospects who will comprise the World team.
Infielder Jean Segura and pitcher Ariel Pena will both represent the Los Angeles Angels on the World team, while London-born pitcher Chris Reed will represent the Los Angeles Dodgers. Neither Southern California team will have a representative on the U.S. team, so that should inform your rooting interests for this one.
The game will begin at 2 p.m. PT and will be televised nationally on ESPN 2, or you can catch the game online at MLB.tv.
