It looks like the All-Star Game will pad players' wallets as well as their resumes for at least the next five years.


As part of the new collective bargaining agreement, the All-Star Game will no longer determine which league has home-field advantage in the World Series. Instead, home-field advantage will go to the pennant winner with the best regular season record. 

So, with World Series home-field advantage no longer determined by the result of the Midsummer Classic, what's going to motivate players to play their best? 


The fans? Pride? The car that comes with the MVP award?


Actually, it's $20,000.


According to reports, players of the winning All-Star team will be awarded a $20,000 check. 

I mean, who wouldn't take $20K? I'm sure nobody is complaining.
