Jul 14, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT


The 2013 All-Star Week festivities get underway this afternoon with the Futures Game — a showcase of some of the best prospects in baseball, pitting U.S.-born players against those from around the world. First pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET at New York’s Citi Field. The game will be broadcast on ESPN 2.

One of the best sights to see during All-Star Week is Futures Game batting practice. The kids aren’t used to the big stadium, the big crowd and the throngs of media, so they each try to put on a show when they step in. Miguel Sano, the Twins’ powerful rising star, apparently lived up to the hype earlier this morning.

    Has anybody noticed that most of them are national league

      I count 9 AL and 11 NL. If you count that as ‘most’ then, I guess so. But this doens’t list the entire roster, just the starting roster.

      As a life long Astros fan, I find your comment amusing and a bit saddening.

        I’m still not used to it.

    Blah, don’t care to watch minor leaguers.

    Why isn’t Byron Buxton starting?!!! No. 1 prospect in all of baseball.

    Syndergaard vs. Montero! Two Guys who should be in the rotation by 2014.
