George Brett and Bernie Williams to manage Futures Game

4 Comments

Tomorrow the rosters for the annual Futures Game will be revealed, but we already know who’ll be managing the collection of elite prospects as part of the All-Star festivities: George Brett and Bernie Williams.

MLB announced that Brett will manage the United States team for the game being played in Kansas City, while Williams will manage the World team.

Brett also managed the United States in the Futures Game back in 2005, when his roster for a 4-0 loss to the World team included Justin Verlander, B.J. Upton, Joel Zumaya, Lastings Milledge, Brandon Wood, Conor Jackson, Daric Barton, Delmon Young, Jeremy Hermida, Chris Iannetta, and Paul Maholm.

Royals prospect Justin Huber was named MVP of that game and went on to hit .224 in 72 games as a major leaguer.
