First, to the All-Star Games scheduled for this month:  on the 12th there four games scheduled:

Atlantic League (hosted by the Somerset Patriots);

Eastern League, hosted by the New Hampshire Fisher Cats;

Frontier League, hosted by the Joliet Slammers;

Triple-A, hosted by the Tacoma Rainers.

I’m told the Atlantic League will use a special ball for the game, and the Frontier League will not.  The Rainiers are selling Official ASG balls on their website while they last; there was also a unique ball used for the Home Run Derby, but those are not being sold to the public.  The Eastern League will also use a special game ball.  Keep an eye on the All-Star Game page in My Collection for updates.

Rounding out July, on the 25th the American Association and the Can-Am League will play a combined ASG, hosted by the Ottawa Champions.  No word yet on a special game ball.

Finally, I’ve updated the Master List of Minor League Commemoratives with the 2017 baseballs (see the Information Warehouse page).  As always, please let me know if you see anything in error.
