Sports

The 2019 MLB All-Star team Rosters were finalized this weekend.

Three New York Mets will be heading to Cleveland for the festivities, two of which were Rumble Ponies last season.

The slugging rookie first baseman Pete Alonso and second baseman Jeff McNeil will join reigning NL CY Young winner Jacob DeGrom at the mid summer classic.

Both Alonso and McNeil were in Binghamton around this time last season.

Alonso is 2nd in the MLB in homeruns with 28 and will also participate in the homerun derby.

McNeil leads the league with a .348 batting average.

The pair will be reserves for the game and deGrom will come out of the bullpen.
