An­gel Her­nan­dez, who sued Ma­jor League Base­ball this week al­leg­ing racial dis­crim­i­na­tion, is among the um­pires for Tues­day’s All-Star Game in Mi­ami.

The rest of the crew an­nounced Thurs­day in­cludes Mark Carl­son (se­cond), Chris Con­roy (third), Manny Gon­za­lez (left) and Mike Estabrook (right). The re­play um­pire in New York will be Doug Ed­dings. Tampa Bay Man­ager Kevin Cash will be among the AL coaches and Mi­ami Man­ager Don Mat­tingly among the NL coaches.
