Standard
The 83rd MLB All-Star game has returned to Kansas City, Missouri.  The loyal Kansas City Royals fans haven’t seen a contending team in a long time.  So it will be a welcome sight for them to see the games best players on stage at their crown jewel of a stadium.  There are many deserving players this year.  What makes this year even better is that a lot of young superstars will be on display for everyone to see.  With that said here are my choices for the mid-summer classic.
