KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The stars of Major League Baseball are set to work out at Kaufman Stadium in Kansas City for the start of the All-Star break that begins today.

Tony LaRussa has come out of retirement to guide the National League, after leading the Cardinals to the World Series title last year. He'll be trying to engineer a third straight win for the NL which holds a 42-38 edge in the mid-summer classic over the American League. The Rangers' Ron Washington skippers the AL All-Stars. The game is set for tomorrow night.

Tonight, swinging for the fences will be the theme with the staging of power packed Home Run Derby.

The American League sluggers taking part are defending champ Robinson Cano, Jose Bautista, who is the current major league co-leader with 27 homers, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo.

National Leaguers who will try to clear the fences are Matt Kemp, Carlos Gonzalez, Carlos Beltran and Andrew McCutchen.
