Major League Baseball, in conjunction with the Major League Baseball Scouting Bureau,, Baseball America and the 30 Major League team, selected the 25-man rosters for both the U.S. Team and the World Team. Each organization is represented and players from all full-season minor leagues were eligible to participate.
