Wegner’s crew will include Ohio native Brian O’Nora (first base), Phil Cuzzi (second base), Ohio native Tim Timmons (third base), D.J. Reyburn (left field) and Jordan Baker (right field). This will mark the third career All-Star assignment for O’Nora (2010), the second for Cuzzi (2008) and Timmons (2009), and the first for Reyburn and Baker. The Replay Official who will be based in the Replay Operations Center during the 2019 All-Star Game will be Fieldin Culbreth, a 23-year Major League Umpire.

Francona served as manager of the AL All-Star squad in 2005 and 2008 following World Series Championships with Boston, as well as 2017 following a World Series appearance with the Indians. In addition, Francona served as a coach on John Farrell’s staff at the 2014 Midsummer Classic in Minnesota.
