NEW YORK -- MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, will offer fans the opportunity to watch an exclusive, free live video webcast of the first-ever New York Penn League All-Star Game, tomorrow, Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. ET from KeySpan Park in Brooklyn, N.Y. This historic game also marks the first time a professional baseball All-Star Game has been played in Brooklyn since Ebbets Field hosted the Major League's best players including Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson, Stan Musial, Ralph Kiner, and Warren Spahn in 1949.

Former Big Leaguer and MLB.TV host Billy Sample and MLB.com Radio personality Jonathan Mayo will provide the live play-by-play of the inaugural New York-Penn League All-Star Game from KeySpan Park, home of the NY Mets' NY-Penn League affiliate Brooklyn Cyclones.

First round draft picks Jed Lowrie and Christopher Volstad are among 21 picks from the 2005 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft who will play in the game. The free broadcast will begin with a Home Run Derby at 6 p.m. ET and the first pitch for this sold out game is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET. Fans can watch live on MLB.com and the Minor League Baseball site, www.MiLB.com.
