That may only be a list of three prospects, but there are multiple teams that have not produced a single player that has played in both the Futures Game and the All Star Game.

In addition to the three Orioles that were in the organization for both the Futures Game and the All Star Games, Baltimore has also had a multitude of players that that have played in both, just not in the Orioles organization for both games such as JJ Hardy, B.J. Ryan, Nelson Cruz, and Danys Baez.
