2012 All-Star Game

Tomorrow on FOX beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET, the 83rd Midsummer Classic will be underway at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. Tune in and watch baseball’s biggest stars as they battle to win home-field advantage for the 2012 World Series.

The National League will be looking for a three-peat, while the American League will try to regain their dominance over the NL, which saw them win 12 years in a row from 1997 to 2009, minus the 2002 controversial tie.

One of the big headliners will be the two young outfielders, Bryce Harper, 19, and Mike Trout, 20. They have put baseball back on the map and it has been a heck of a ride watching them play the game. Both will surely win Rookie of the Year if they can keep up their torrid pace.

My prediction for the game is American League over the National League, 4-3.

Here are the lineups and starting pitchers for this year’s game.
