2013 Minor League All-Star Teams & Award Winners

We like to think that making the Baseball America Minor League All-Star Team is the gold standard for achievement, but being recognized by one’s peers on one of the 16 minor league postseason all-star teams would have rank a close second. Here we note for the record every member of every all-star team selected by league representatives, i.e. typically some combination of league managers, coaches, beat writers and broadcasters.

To reiterate, these are not BA award winners. This is a reference guide to all the official postseason hardware handed out by the individual minor leagues.

An asterisk (*) denotes a lefthanded pitcher.
