All-Star game coaching staffs to include Lloyd McClendon, A.J. Hinch, Bryan Price, Don Mattingly

All-Star game managers Ned Yost of the Royals and Bruce Bochy of the Giants have chosen their coaching staffs for the 86th game in Cincinnati next month.

Yost picked Astros manager A.J. Hinch and Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, while Bochy chose Reds manager Bryan Price and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.

Hinch and Mattingly are managing first-place teams while McClendon and Price are managing sub-.500 teams, but All-Star coaching staffs are more about who the managers want to experience the game alongside rather than any sort of merit-based selections.
