Welcome to the 30th Annual DMBL All-Star Game!

This year we prepare to play the 30th 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 to be a pitcher's duel early on as both pitchers struck out the sides in the first inning, but Diamond drew first blood after Shane Bieber walked Mark Canha with the bases loaded in the second. Diamond epanded the lead to 4-0 with a three-run homer from Jose Abreu. However, Diamond was far from finished. In the bottom of the 5th, Jared Walsh launched a three-run shot of his own and Byron Buxton followed it up with a two-run dinger of his own to take the lead 5-4 for Micro. Diamond tied it up in the 6th with a Salvador Perez sac fly that scored Jose Altuve, then took the lead in the 8th when Eugenio Suarez's single scored two runners. Marcell Ozuna added a homer in the 9th to seal the deal and Kenly Jansen sent Micro down in order to preserve the win.

Vancouver's Jose Abreu was named MVP, hitting a single and a three-run homer, plus a hit by pitch. It was the first Vancouver MVP since 1993.
