Featuring top players in Major League Baseball (MLB), the All-Star Game is the league's premier event of the summer and millions of baseball fans anticipate seeing elite players in the American League (AL) face-off against the National League (NL).
The Home Run Derby is scheduled for July 13th, 2009 and the All-Star Game takes place on July 14, 2009. Both events will take place at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, home field of the St. Louis Cardinals. Also known as the Midsummer Classic, the All-Star game represents the half-way point for the one hundred sixty-two-game MLB season and is one of the most anticipated events on the MLB schedule. Since 2003, the winning league has been awarded home field advantage in the World Series, an incentive for players and managers. The 2009 match-up will be the eightieth All-Star Game ever played in MLB history.
All-Star Game starters are determined by fan voting, which reached a record twenty-three and a half million ballots cast this year, up from twenty million in 2008. "St. Louis is a great baseball town and with a top notch lineup of players this year, the 2009 All-Star Game will be star-studded with the likes of Albert Pujols, second baseman Chase Utley, shortstop Derek Jeter, third baseman David Wright, and outfielders Raul Ibanez & Ryan Braun," said Alexandra Owens, Managing Editor. "Each year there is significant demand from fans eager to secure tickets to the All-Star Game, and this year is no different," added Owens.
Played on the day before the All-Star Game, the Home Run Derby is an exhibition event that showcases the best sluggers in the game.
