Once teammates, Adrian Beltré and Michael Young will be squaring off against one another on the diamond.

The two Texas Ranger greats were named managers for the 2024 MLB All-Star Futures Game that will be played on July 13 at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

Beltré, who played eight of his 21 MLB seasons with the Rangers, will lead the American League Futures team. It will be a busy month of July for Beltré. He’ll be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame the weekend after the Futures Game. The third baseman ended his illustrious career 18th on the all-time hit list (3,166), and 31st on the home run list (477).

Young, who spent 12 of his 13 big-league seasons in Texas, will be at the helm of the National League Futures squad. A versatile infielder, Young had his uniform number retired in 2019, along with Beltré. Young is the Rangers’ all-time leader in a number of offensive categories, including games (1,823), hits (2,230), and runs (1,085).

This will mark the 25th year the Futures Game will be played. It has featured some of the game’s top minor league prospects over the years, including Mike Trout, Ronald Acuña Jr., Mookie Betts, Bryce Harper, and Justin Verlander.

Miami Marlins infielder Nasim Nuñez was named the Larry Doby MVP Award winner in last year’s Futures Game in Seattle. His three-run double helped the National League pull off a 5-0 victory.

The Futures Game will once again feature the National League vs. American League format, which was introduced in 2019. With the victory, the NL now holds a 2-1-1 advantage under this format. The first 20 years of the event pitted the U.S. vs. World.
