The 24th annual Triple-A All-Star Game, to be played in Spring Mobile Ballpark, will be televised live on MLB Network Wednesday, July 13, as longtime MLB broadcaster Chris Rose and former big leaguer and 2004 World Series champion Kevin Millar, co-hosts of “Intentional Talk” on MLB Network, will call the action.
Spring Mobile Ballpark, home of the Salt Lake Bees, is hosting this year’s match between the Pacific Coast League and International League All-Stars. This will be the second time the Triple-A All-Star Game has aired on MLB Network following last year’s contest at Coca-Cola Park, home of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
Handling play-by-play duties on the telecast will be Chris Rose. Rose is an MLB Network studio host, where he appears weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on “Intentional Talk,” an open forum where everyone and everything is the subject of discussion and opinion.
Serving as the analyst will be Kevin Millar. The 12-year Major League first baseman and outfielder who played from 1998 to 2009 is an MLB Network studio analyst, regularly appearing on “Intentional Talk” and “MLB Tonight.” The former member of the Marlins, Red Sox, Orioles, and Blue Jays also spent parts of two seasons at the Triple-A level, suiting up in 1998 for the International League’s Charlotte Knights before playing in 1999 with Calgary of the Pacific Coast League. In 2004, Millar was part of the Boston Red Sox team that won the franchise’s first World Series championship in 86 years.
Steve Klauke of Salt Lake and Durham’s Neil Solondz will call the action from this year’s Triple-A All-Star Game live on the Triple-A All-Star Game Radio Network. Klauke, who is known as the only “voice” in Salt Lake Bees franchise history, will be calling his second Triple-A All-Star Game during his career after broadcasting the 1996 game, which was also held in Salt Lake City. Solondz is in his eighth season as the radio announcer for the Durham Bulls.Before calling games in Durham, Solondz worked for the Lakewood BlueClaws (Low Class A; Sally League) and the Quad City River Bandits (Low Class A; Midwest League).
