MLBers in LA to prepare for Japan All-Star Series

A group of some of MLB's best players are heading to Japan as part of this offseason's Japan All-Star Series, and on Friday, they spent some time at Dodger Stadium making sure they were ready to go.

You see, like any All-Star team, this group of MLB players, which includes stars like Evan Longoria, Robinson Cano and Yasiel Puig, needed a bit of time to work together and build some team unity before jetting off to Japan. 

Here's the gang doing a bit of running to shake off those Halloween cobwebs:
