This is a rather young selection of All-Stars, as 12 of the 17 starters are 26 years of age or younger. 29 players on
the rosters are 27 or younger. On the AL team, every starter is 26 or younger aside from David Ortiz.

11 of the All-Star starters are first-timers. The most since 2005. In total, there are 26 first-time starters
among the 68 players on both rosters.

Ziegler is an alum of my alma mater, Missouri State. So I always root for him. Ryan Howard also played ball at MSU

MLB trade deadline to be on August 1, 2016

This is a leap year, and for MLB, it will mean a one-day leap in the annual non-waiver Trade Deadline.

The non-waiver Trade Deadline this season will be moved to Aug. 1st from the traditional July 31st -- which in 2016
falls on a Sunday.

The deadline is 4 p.m. ET, and on July 31, there are 7 games scheduled to begin between 1-1:30, 5 between 2-3:30
and 3 at 4. There are only 8 games on Aug. 1, all of which are night games.

It was announced by Commissioner Rob Manfred and he stressed that it will only be a one-year adjustment.
