Ron Washington to Manage MLB Team in All-Star Series vs. Japan's All-Star Team in November

Posted: Updated:
Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association jointly announced today that MLB All-Stars Robinson Cano of the Seattle Mariners, Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles, Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Albert Pujols of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will be among the group of accomplished Major Leaguers who will travel to Japan this November to play a five-game series against “Samurai Japan” (Japan's National Team) in “All-Star Series 2014.”  The MLB All-Stars will be led by Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington, who led the Rangers to back-to-back American League pennants in 2010 and 2011.

The 2014 renewal of the event will mark the 11th All-Star Series and the 36th time overall that a team of Major Leaguers has toured Japan for exhibition games, dating back to 1908.  The current five-game format was first played in 2006, which was the last time the MLB All-Stars faced off against the Japan All-Stars.  MLB's 2006 roster – which included All-Stars such as Bronson Arroyo, Ryan Howard, John Lackey, Joe Mauer, Joe Nathan, Jose Reyes, David Wright and Chase Utley – went 5-0 in the All-Star Series. 

All-Star Series games will be hosted in Osaka (Kyocera Dome), Tokyo (Tokyo Dome) and Sapporo (Sapporo Dome).  Two exhibition games will complement the five-game series, with one game in Osaka (Koshien Stadium) and the other in Okinawa (Okinawa Cellular Stadium).

Tickets for All-Star Series 2014 will be available at http://l-tike.com/mlbjp/ beginning at 10:00 a.m. (Japanese time) on Saturday, September 13th
