Holliday, who has 15 home runs this season, joins fellow National League players Philadelphia's Ryan Howard, Milwaukee's Prince Fielder and St. Louis' Albert Pujols in Monday night's event. Cabrera pulled out Sunday because of a jammed left shoulder. San Francisco slugger Barry Bonds declined to participate, citing the wear and tear on his legs.

The AL players in the event are Minnesota's Justin Morneau, Toronto's Alex Rios, the Angels' Vladimir Guerrero and Detroit's Magglio Ordonez.
