Oakland Athletics manager Mark Kotsay and Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell were selected as All-Star coaches for the July 16 game at Arlington, Texas.

Kotsay will be on the American League staff of Bruce Bochy, who won the World Series with the Texas Rangers last season. Kotsay played three seasons under Bochy (2001-03) when the two were with the San Diego Padres.

Bell was picked to the National League staff by Torey Lovullo, who guided the Arizona Diamondbacks to the World Series last season. Bell and Lovullo were teammates for Cleveland in 1998.

James Hoye, in his 16th season, will serve as the crew chief and home plate umpire for the All-Star Game. Also selected were Bruce Dreckman (first base), John Tumpane (second), Nic Lentz (third), Ben May (left field) and Nestor Ceja (right field).
