For those La Crosse Loggers fans, the MLB All-Star game will have a special meaning tonight. 

Not only are two former Loggers in the game - the two are the all-star starters, facing off against each other for the AL and NL at 7 p.m. tonight on FOX. 

Chris Sale of the Boston Red Sox played for the Loggers back in 2008. The Washington Nationals' Max Scherzer was on the team in 2004. 

At a press conference Monday, they talked briefly about their summers in La Crosse. Go to 14:40 (or -13:31 on video below) or watch the abbreviated clip here.
