Worcester has the most selections of any BARB team to this year's MLB All-Star Game. And they have the winningest record in BARB, so far. Coincidence? The entire Eliminators starting outfield will make the squad! Black Mesa has six selections, but only one is a starting pitcher, reflecting their team's current need. Darwin, by contrast, has four starters on the MLB All-Star rosters. Los Angeles, sadly, has none at present though Mark Reynolds may be added as an alternate. The full breakdown of BARB teams by All-Star selection:

Worcester 8

Frostbite Falls 7

Fresno 7

Black Mesa 6

Darwin 6

Brooklyn 5

Yuma 5

Pottsylvania 3

Casselton 3

St. Francis 3

Las Vegas 3

Texas 3

Los Angeles 0*
