FutureStarrAll Star Futures Game Jersey
Bryson Stott started the 8 inning of the All-Star Futures Game in an uniform from the Phillies’ High-A affiliate, the Camden Yards, on Sunday. He allowed 4 hits, struck out 3, and only gave up a run and a hit in his 4 innings.
A lefty hitter, Stott has been one of the standouts in the Phillies’ system this season. In 46 games between Jersey Shore and Reading, he’s hitting .282 with a .413 on-base percentage and a .509 slugging percentage. He has nine homers and 22 RBIs. He played second base and shortstop early in the season at Jersey Shore but has been used solely at shortstop with Reading.
The venues traditionally alternated between the American and National Leagues every year, with an AL team hosting in an odd-numbered year and an NL club hosting in an even-numbered year. This tradition has been broken several times; the first time was in 1951, when the AL's Detroit Tigers hosted the game as part of the city's 250th birthday (corrected by the NL hosting the next two seasons). The second was when the two-game format from 1959 to 1962 resulted in the AL being one game ahead in turn. The NL hosted two straight games in 2006 and 2007 (Pittsburgh and San Francisco), and then hosted four straight games from 2015 to 2018 (in Cincinnati, San Diego, Miami, and Washington). It will do so once again in 2021–2022 (in Denver and Los Angeles). (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
The "home team" has traditionally been the league in which the host franchise plays its games. The lone exception has been the 2016 Game in which the AL was the "home" team, despite its being played in Petco Park, home of the NL's San Diego Padres. This was announced after the 2017 All-Star Game was awarded to Miami, marking a third straight game hosted at an NL venue. This was done because, from 2003 to 2016, the league who won the All-Star Game was given home field advantage in the World Series, and MLB did not want to allow the NL to have the last at-bat in an All-Star Game for three straight years.
Washington Nationals top pitching prospect Cade Cavalli has been selected to represent the organization in the 2021 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game. Major League Baseball made the announcement today on MLB Network’s “MLB Central.” The 22nd SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game features the top Minor League prospects competing as part of All-Star Sunday.
