Major League Baseball's stars of tomorrow will be on display in the 2014 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, which will be played Sunday at 5 p.m. ET at Target Field and air on the MLB Network and MLB.com.
Since its introduction in 1999, the All-Star Futures Game has evolved into the hidden gem of All-Star weekend, as the event offers fans a unique opportunity to watch baseball’s brightest prospects on the same field.
Each year, the event serves as a stepping stone for prospects destined for greatness, as 22 players from last year’s game have already reached the major leagues, including up-and-coming stars such as Gregory Polanco, Yordano Ventura, George Springer, Billy Hamilton and Christian Yelich.
Though some of the younger players are in the early stages of development, a majority of the participants in this year’s game are within striking distance of the major leagues and could potentially debut before the end of the season.
