The Classic, now in its ninth year, featured a new twist last year when recently retired players representing the major league clubs joined the roster and participate in the Classic and weekend events. The new format, fueled by assistance from Major League Baseball brought an infusion of new faces into the Classic lineup, which will feature the pre-game Hitting Contest at noon. First pitch of the Classic is slated for 1:05 p.m.
