UMPIRES: HP Mike Reilly, 1B Mike Winters, 2B Brian O’Nora, 3B Laz Diaz, OF Bruce Dreckman, OF Jim Wolf

WEATHER: Temperatures in the upper 70s with practically no chance of rain.

THE BOSS: Flags will be flown at half-staff and there will be a moment of silence in memory of George Steinbrenner.

THE STREAK: The National League has not won the All-Star Game since 1996.

THE YANKEES: Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano are in the starting lineup. Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher are on the bench. Phil Hughes and Andy Pettitte are available out of the bullpen. CC Sabathia and Mariano Rivera were chosen but are not available to play. Joe Girardi is managing the All-Star Game for the first time in his career.

UPDATE, 8:38 p.m.: Pregame highlight might have been Alex Rodriguez playing it up when the crowd started booing. It was inevitable, and Rodriguez went over the top to pretend he was getting the loudest ovation he’d ever heard. Pretty hilarious.

Also, I really like that All-Stars Among Us thing. It’s a good idea, and I think they pull it off pretty well. Nice touch by the cameras to find Jeter and Girardi during the moment of silence.

UPDATE, 9:25 p.m.: Andy Pettitte just induced a ground ball to Derek Jeter who flipped to Robinson Cano for the final out of the third inning.
