Welcome to the 26th Annual DMBL All-Star Game!

This year we prepare to play the 26th 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 new 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.

The Diamond Conference unloaded against Micro in this year's All-Star Game. The Diamonds scored early and often, starting off with back to back RBI doubles in the 1st inning. Diamond added two more runs in the second on a Yoenis Cespedes home run. Micro got on the board in the 2nd with a Manny Machado solo homer, but Diamond got it back and then some with 3 runs in the 3rd and another 3 in the 4th. In the 5th inning, Miguel Cabrera hit a 2-run homer to open up a 12-2 lead. After burning through all the starting pitchers, Micro's relief pitchers finally shut down the scoring for the final 4 innings. Micro added another 2 runs in the 8th but it was too late and the hole was too deep.

Every starter for Team Diamond got at least one hit. Mark Trumbo was named MVP as he led all batters with 3 RBIs. Miguel Cabrera and Yoenis Cespedes each contributed 2 RBIs on their home runs. The result was the most lopsided score since 2008 when Morris pounded Hanover 13-1.
