The purpose of this exercise is to create a diverse and interesting team for the Future Stars Game within the next two weeks. The main focus is to have a roster that is balanced and exciting, but also familiar and accessible.

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.

Considering the positional constraints and requirement that each club have a representative on the two teams, roster space can fill up pretty quickly. To illustrate the challenge, here’s my crack at completing full All-Star teams for each league, using the same rules set by MLB. There are 32 spots for each All-Star team—20 position players and 12 pitchers. Replacements for injured players and pitchers ineligible to throw in the game will come later, though I’ll grant an extra spot to the American League since we already know Mike Trout won’t be playing this year.

This selection round for the FSS Main Event at Citi Field is limited to 132-150 players who are divided into teams closely resembling regions across the country. Teams are coached by Future Stars Series National Staff and Current Major League Baseball Club Scouts. The 2022 FSS National Combine will be held at Fenway Park. Players will receive footwear, a jersey, hat, and pants along with a vision and cognitive response test, psych exam, video, and data analysis. Both New Balance Baseball and Marucci Sports will be on hand to allow players to customize their gear should they be selected to the Main Event. There is no cost for participating in this event, but selected players will take part in fundraising efforts for charity through the Future Stars Series Foundation.

A number of Minor League managers and coaches will fill out the field staffs for both Futures Game teams. Coaches Dean Treanor (Indianapolis), Howard Johnson (Tacoma), Chris Cron (Erie), Keith Bodie (Corpus Christi), Andy Green (Mobile) and Brad Holman (Round Rock) will help guide the U.S. squad while Charlie Montoyo (Durham), Steve Scarsone (Sacramento), Pedro Lopez (Binghamton), Julio Vinas (Birmingham), Jacque Jones (San Antonio) and Neil Allen (Durham) will serve on the World staff.
