The rosters, which were announced today, include the No. 1 eligible prospect from at least 10 different systems, with several others who will be contenders for that title by year-end. I always think the game is a must-watch -- and I'll be there in Minneapolis on July 13 -- but this year looks exceptionally fun.
(The complete roster for the U.S. team can be found here, while the World team roster is here.
Among those top prospects are six middle infielders, one of them hurt, all of whom look like they'll be stars at the major league level.
