The format for the All Star Game in the German Baseball-Bundesliga got changed. No longer will the north face the south, but instead the best players of the league will square off against the German National Team. This year’s All Star Game will take place on Sunday, July 6 in Solingen. A home run derby is scheduled as well.
Nominations for the German National Team will be done by head coach Greg Frady. Martin Helmig (Buchbinder Legionaere Regensburg) and Norman Eberhardt (Solingen Alligators) will choose 15 of the 18 Bundesliga All Stars. The remaining three players will be selected in an online voting on www.baseball-bundesliga.de.
