The 2012 MLB Season is nearing its midpoint as players, coaches and front office personnel are preparing for the 2012 All-Star Break. But before the regular season pauses for its annual celebration of talent, the league has to announce who will actually participate in the 2012 MLB All-Star Game.
This season, the announcement will come via a TBS special on Sunday afternoon, the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Selection Show presented by Taco Bell, followed by the series conclusion of the Chicago White Sox versus the New York Yankees. Here's a look at the details for the event:
Time: 12:00 p.m. CDT, Sunday, July 1
First Pitch: 1:00 p.m CDT
