In 2005 and 2006 the MLL went with the “Young Guns” vs “Old School” approach to their All-Star game. In 2007 and 2008, the league reverted back to the standard East vs. West methodolgy. In 2009, they have again made the switch to the YGs vs the OSers and the game will be played at Denver’s Invesco Field on July 16th, a Thursday.
