The 2010 Midsummer Classic in Myrtle Beach will mark the second consecutive All-Star Game on the Carolina League cycle that the Pelicans will be hosting. The club hosted the 2008 Carolina League-California League All-Star Game, which was regarded as one of the best in event history. A crowd of 6,599, still tied for the largest in BB&T Coastal Field history, packed the ballpark for the 2008 event, which featured numerous top Major League prospects, including current big leaguers, Pablo Sandoval (San Francisco Giants) and Matt Wieters (Baltimore Orioles).
