Not quite the "all star" team but a good assembly of players from the U.S. Fun game to watch and fun to watch Matsui coaching

Always fun, these kinds of events. I love the response of Realmuto being invited to the "hero's mound".

"During the series, pitchers will not be allowed to throw more than 80 pitches per game. If a pitcher throws more than 50 pitches, he must have four days of rest before being able to throw in another game."

This should be extended to ALL baseball, especially from high school baseball -- might end up with less players on the DL after a mere couple games.

This is a special rule for the exhibition series, to keep MLB owners happy and allow their players to play in the out of season in Japan. After a long season. Less than 50 pitches for a regular game will never work in pro baseball. These pitchers are paid huge Salary.

The series will be exciting and close I think!
