Major League Baseball announced its All-Star rosters Sunday afternoon ahead of the All-Star game which will be played on July 10 at Kaufmann Stadium in Kansas City.
Rosters for the 2012 MLB All-Star game in Kansas City have been announced.
The major controversies so far are that neither Chipper Jones, nor Bryce Harper was selected to the National League squad, though both are in the Final Vote contest where fans can add one more player to each roster.
The other National League Players who are part of the Final Vote are Atlanta's Michael Bourn, David Freese of the Cardinals and Aaron Hill of the Diamondbacks.
In the American League, the Final Vote selections are Jonathan Broxton of the Royals, Yu Darvish of the Rangers, Ernesto Frieri of the Angels, Jason Hammel of the Orioles and Jake Peavy from the White Sox.
The winner of the game wins home field advantage in the 2012 World Series for their league.
