Welcome to the 20th Annual DMBL All-Star Game!

This year we prepare to play the 29th All-Star Game in league history -- a game pitting the top players from the Diamond Conference and the Micro Conference.  2012 was the first year that featured the conference matchups. Previously it had been the Hanover Division against the Morris Division, but with the league expansion, the DMBL chose to realign its two divisions into four.   In 1991 and 1992, there were only six and seven teams, and only one division.  The top players from those six or seven teams were pitted against the AL and NL All-Stars in a two game series.  In 1993, when the league expanded to 10 teams, the league was split into two divisions allowing for a better All-Star game format.

It looked like this year's game was going to be an offensive showcase. Ketel Marte led off the bottom of the first with a solo home run, then Diamond returned in the 2nd with back to back homers from Charlie Blackmon and George Springer. However, Diamond tied the game back up in the bottom of the inning with a Ramon Laureano homer. Diamond would go on to score three more runs int he next two innings to open up a 5-2 lead. In the top of the 5th, Xander Bogaerts and Keston Hiura homered to bring Micro within one, but that would be as far as they would get. Rafael Devers doubled in an insurance run in the 5th and that would be all the scoring as both bullpens shut down the rest of the game.

This year's MVP was split between Ketel Marte and Rafael Devers, both of which had identical 3-4 lines with 2 RBIs, and a double and home run each. It was the first shared MVP since 1993.

Check out all the details in the box score.
