Atlantic League All-Star Game TicketsThe Atlantic League All-Star Game has been thrilling spectators since the debut of the Atlantic League back in 1998. The Atlantic League is comprised of eight teams throughout the Mid-Atlantic states as well as Texas. The players that take to the field to play each year at the All-Star Game are the best all-around players from these eight teams. The Atlantic League has been an immensely exciting area of professional baseball since the MLB tests new rules and regulations with the Atlantic League. Some of these are the Trackman-assisted strike zone, a stop to mound visits, a three batter minimum for pitchers, an increase in base size, a cut in time between innings and the distance from the mound to the pitching rubber increased. Some additional rules that have been introduced are that a pitcher must step off the rubber to make a pickoff, only one foul butt is permitted once there are two strikes before a strikeout, batters may steal first base on any non-caught-in-flight pitch and others. This makes the Atlantic League a fascinating group of players to see in order to get an idea of the future of professional baseball.
