The U.S. team topped the World 17-5 in the 2012 MLB All-Star Futures game, which brings together some of the most well-regarded prospects in the baseball. The Chicago White Sox were represented by Carlos Sanchez, who went 1-2 with a run for the World team. Jae-Hoon Ha, who was also on the World team, represented the Cubs and was 2-2 with two walks and a run scored.

Despite their efforts, though, the World wasn't able to keep up with the U.S. The U.S. had a 6-5 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth inning, which was where they put the game away with a nine-run outburst.
Jae-Hoon Ha is hitting .259/.326/.353 for the Tennessee Smokies in 2012. Sanchez is hitting .320/.380/.398 for the Winston-Salem Dash.
