Digital First Media live blog from the All-Star Game at Citi Field

The Detroit Tigers have an MLB-best six representatives at the 2013 All-Star Game in New York this week, including the manager of the American League, Jim Leyland, and the AL starting pitcher, Max Scherzer.

"We’re very proud of that. The Tigers are very well represented," said Leyland, who brought his entire coaching staff, as is his right. "That’s guys that get slighted, too. It’s kind of a reward for the coaches that never get noticed about anything, unless things aren’t going right. Those guys get to go, and take their wives and family. It’s a nice experience.

"I’m glad they’re all going, they all accepted."

In all, the Tigers had more than 40 people pile on the team plane, including the All-Star contingent from the visiting Texas Rangers, who were in town through Sunday.

Follow along as Digital First Media reporters take you inside All-Star Week at Citi Field, from Monday's workout and Home Run Derby to Tuesday's 84th MLB All-Star Game.
