It’s that time of year again, summer fully shifting into gear. Basketball done, hockey finished (if anyone cares)–looks like it’s baseball and more baseball till preseason football rolls around.

With the 84th All Star Game a week from tomorrow, and the midway point quickly approaching, all eyes now point to the game’s completely star-studded cast (sans each league’s Fan Vote winner).

The league revealed the full rosters Saturday night of who will be competing in the July 16 contest at Citi Field (home of the Mets) in Flushing, Queens.

The AL and NL teams will be managed by 2012 World Series matchup’s managers, Jim Leyland and Bruce Bochy, respectively. Take a look at the full squads below. Who got snubbed? Who could’ve been left off?
