  • The East team included 10 Dayton Dragons; the West team included 8 Beloit Snappers.
  • For the purposes of this game, the Eastern Division added Burlington. This selection was apparently made by a lottery.
  • Lansing's Matt Bruback, Dayton's Braxton Whitehead, and Dayton's Eric Welsh had been promoted, and did not appear in this game. Chad Yates of Peoria was on the Disabled List.
  • The managers (and coaching staffs) were determined by divisional standings at the mid-season break.
