While that’s entertaining and all – fans have anxiously been awaiting the lineup for the historic game tonight. AL Manager Ron Washington and NL Manager Tony LaRussa released their lineups this morning.

The batting order for tonights game is as follows:

1. Derek Jeter – NY Yankees SS
2. Robinson Cano – NY Yankees 2B
3. Josh Hamilton – Texas Rangers LF
4. Jose Bautista – Toronto Blue Jays RF

6. Adrian Beltre – Texas Rangers 3B

Looking at the batting order, its definitely understandable as to why many are predicting AL domination in the game this year. With power hitters like Josh Hamilton and Jose Bautista, and defensive jewels like Derek Jeter and Adrian Beltre, it’s going to be hard to the NL to claim a victory. But you never know in these All-Star Games. Everyone wants to take home the bragging rights and home-field advantage in the World Series
