Major League Baseball announced its six-man umpiring crew for the 2014 All-Star Game which is slated for Tuesday at Target Field in Minneapolis.

And one of the six is Holcomb native Todd Tichenor, who will be making his first appearance in the 85th Midsummer Classic.

Tichenor will be assigned to the left field foul line behind third base.

The remaining five members of the crew will be Gary Cederstrom, crew chief, who will be behind home plate; Jeff Nelson (first base); Bob Davidson (second base); Scott Barry (third base) and Vic Carapazza (right field). It also will be the first All-Star appearance for Barry and Carapazza.
