With two months of the 2016 season in the books, the time has come for the mid-season Florida State League All-Star Game to showcase someof the best talent in baseball.

The FSL All-Star Game will take place at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers on Saturday, June 18, 2016 with the FSL North facing off against the FSL South. The FSL South roster seems to be more “pitcher dominant” with the FSL North predominantly consisting of hitters.

Some of the most highly touted minor leaguers in the sports have earned a spot to play on the game, including New York Yankees’ top prospect SS Jorge Mateo, Detroit Tigers’ outfielder Christin Stewart, Tampa Bay Rays’ RHP Brent Honeywell and Minnesota Twins’ LHP Tyler Jay; all ranked in the Top 100 List by MLB.com.

Other notable players who will be making appearances in this year’s FSL All-Star Game are Pirates’ heavy hitter Kevin Newman who has a league leading .346 batting average and Twins’ top ten prospect Stephen Gonsalves who has a 2.01 ERA this season with a 5-2 record.
