Welcome to the Bleacher Report-exclusive live blog of the XM All-Star Futures game!

For the true baseball fan, the Futures Game began in 1999 and represents a unique opportunity to see the top prospects in the majors compete on the same field for the first time as pros. Among the major league stars who have appeared in the game are Josh Hamilton, Joey Votto, Lance Berkman, CC Sabathia, Pablo Sandoval and Chase Utley.

The United States will look to defend their 9-1 victory from last year, which broke a three-year winning streak for the World team. The all-time series is tied at six wins apiece.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. EDT.
