The 2011 All-Star Game managers, Ron Washington of the Texas Rangers and Bruce Bochy of the San Francisco Giants, have announced their starting lineups for the 82nd Midsummer Classic. The lineups were announced at this morning's 2011 All-Star Press Conference in Phoenix.

Washington's American League lineup will be:

CURTIS GRANDERSON, NYY CF .269 25 HR 63 RBI
ASDRUBAL CABRERA, CLE SS .293 14 HR 51 RBI
ADRIAN GONZALEZ, BOS 1B .354 17 HR 77 RBI
JOSE BAUTISTA, TOR RF .334 31 HR 65 RBI
JOSH HAMILTON, TEX LF .301 11 HR 49 RBI
ADRIAN BELTRE, TEX 3B .273 19 HR 71 RBI
DAVID ORTIZ, BOS DH .304 19 HR 55 RBI
ROBINSON CANO, NYY 2B .296 15 HR 57 RBI
ALEX AVILA, DET C .286 10 HR 46 RBI
JERED WEAVER, LAA RHP 11-4 1.86 ERA

Weaver, an All-Star for the second consecutive season, will be the third Angel ever to start the Midsummer Classic, joining Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan in 1979 and Mark Langston in 1993. Weaver was a member of the A.L. squad at Angel Stadium in 2010, but he was not active for the contest. In 19 starts this season, he has thrown 140.1 innings with 120 strikeouts and 31 walks. He has four complete games and two shutouts on the season.

Bochy's National League lineup will be:

RICKIE WEEKS, MIL 2B .278 17 HR 39 RBI
CARLOS BELTRAN, NYM DH .285 13 HR 58 RBI
MATT KEMP, LAD CF .313 22 HR 67 RBI
PRINCE FIELDER, MIL 1B .297 22 HR 72 RBI
BRIAN McCANN, ATL C .310 15 HR 50 RBI
LANCE BERKMAN, STL RF .290 24 HR 63 RBI
MATT HOLLIDAY, STL LF .324 14 HR 49 RBI
TROY TULOWITZKI, COL SS .268 17 HR 57 RBI
SCOTT ROLEN, CIN 3B .241 5 HR 36 RBI
ROY HALLADAY, PHI RHP 11-3 2.45 ERA

Halladay will become the fourth pitcher in history to start the Midsummer Classic for both leagues, joining Vida Blue (AL: 1971 and 1975; NL: 1978), Roger Clemens (AL: 1986 and 2001; NL: 2004) and Randy Johnson (AL: 1995, 1997; NL: 2000-2001). Halladay was the American League's starting pitcher in 2009 while a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. The two-time (2003 AL, 2010 NL) Cy Young Award winner becomes the first Phillies hurler to start the All-Star Game since Curt Schilling in 1999.

The 82nd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be televised nationally by FOX Sports, in Canada by Rogers Sportsnet and Sportsnet HD and Le Reseau des Sports, and around the world by 47 broadcast outlets to more than 200 countries and in 14 languages, with pregame ceremonies beginning at 8:00 p.m. (EDT)/5:00 p.m. (local).
