FutureStarrAll Star Future Games 2014
The Fantasy Football phenomenon is still strong. When the season kicks off on Week 1, it may be another season in which teams fall in love with the two-time defending champion Saints or the Broncos just maybe, just maybe win the Super Bowl. But still, the conversation and the debate will center around who are the favorites this season. Those are the stakes in the All Star Future Games.
The game is played by the same rules listed in the Official Baseball Rules published by Major League Baseball. Exceptions are game duration and the handling of tie games. From 2008 through 2018, games lasted 9 innings. From 1999 to 2007 and since 2019, games last seven innings. Through 2018, up to two extra innings were available to settle a tie after playing all regulation innings. In 2019 and since 2021, one extra inning may be played, with each half-inning starting with a runner at second base, the last player put out. The home team wins if they take the lead in the 7th or 8th inning; the visitors win if they hang on in either inning; the game is over if it is tied after eight.
"Green got all of it, hitting it to straightaway center field, where he thought he had a home run. But thanks to the big wall at Chase Field, it landed just below the home run line and he had to stop at second. 'I thought it was gone,' Green said. 'I didn't know it was a 15-foot-high wall. I thought it was a normal wall. I even heard from people in the stands when I got to second base, telling me to hit the weight room. The shortstop [Jurickson Profar] was cracking up behind me. It's all fun and games. That wall's huge. They need to lower that thing, make me feel good about myself.'" - Mayo, Jonathan A's Green wins XM Futures Game MVP Award. 10 July 2011.

A: Tryout attendance is by invitation only. Invites typically are sent to the players starting in April and it is not uncommon for a player to receive an invite the day before a tryout. Invitations are sent to players based on recommendations from Major League Scouts from all 30 teams. However, if a player is recommended to tryout, it is does not guarantee that he will be extended an invite. The scouts running that team in that region make that decision. If you would like to be referred to a scout, you can fill out an Area Code Player Submission Form and it will be forwarded to the regional scout who runs the tryout for consideration. The team tryout schedule can be found here. Please note that we cannot give out names or contact information for the scouts running the teams. If you have any questions, please forward them to our staff and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. For more information, you can email Kirsten Leetch at email@example.com.
Players, after you submit an Area Code Player Submission Form, it will be forwarded off to the scout running the team in your region. Invites to the tryouts typically are sent in late April and May, however, some teams have been known to invite players the day before the tryout. Each tryout varies in size and is determined by those running the team in that region. You may not attend a tryout that is out of your area. We ask that you fill out all forms sent in the tryout invite ASAP to ensure a spot in the tryout. (Source: www.areacodebaseball.com)
