So many of the players on the All-Star team are familiar to Minnesota fans. One of them is not only a former Twin, but he grew up here too. Pat Neshek cut his teeth as a middle reliever for the Minnesota Twins, with his strange and effective delivery.
How’s this for an all-star experience? They ask you to pitch batting practice to the American League. That was the call for former Gopher and Twins player Brian Raabe, and it gave him an opportunity to forget about a baseball problem at Bethel University.
It’s not just the baseball stars who are going to get the chance to shine in both Monday and Tuesday night’s games.
Among the many other players in the game are the umpires and one happens to be a local. Jeff Nelson wanted this assignment.

The floods of the summer of 2014 will be remembered for years to come. But for one area high school basketball coach they are still too real. Randy Carlson and his family lost their home to a mudslide in June. They had to run to escape it. Now, the house is a total loss and none of the damage is covered by insurance.
All-Star game appearances are special, as Minnesota native Terry Steinbach knows. In 1988 he was voted into his first All-Star game, and he was hitting just 217. But that night it didn’t matter for him or his home town of New Ulm, Minn. Steinbach remembers it well what it meant to be named to the All-Star team.
