When the 2015 MLB All-Star Game begins in Cincinnati's Great American Ballpark, the league's best players will battle for home-field advantage in the upcoming World Series. While some players will just be happy to be there, others will have bigger reasons to perform well in the Midsummer Classic. Whether it's securing home-field advantage for their league or showing that they belong with MLB's elite, these five players have the most to prove.

Holt was a surprising selection for the All-Star game after being chosen as a reserve utility player for the American League. His ability to play multiple positions is what makes him valuable and allows for manager Ned Yost to use him as a late-game substitution. If the game is close, Holt will need to come up with a big hit or a clutch defensive stop to warrant the All-Star nomination.

The Kansas City Royals were awarded a staggering six All-Star nominations, and Cain will be carrying the torch for the AL's best team. He's the Royals' best player and will be starting in the outfield after an impressive first half where he hit .312 with seven home runs and 39 RBIs. This is also his first All-Star game, so he will have something to prove in order to become a perennial selection for the Midsummer Classic.

Harper has lived up to the immense hype this season with a monstrous first half, hitting .343 with 25 home runs and 60 RBIs. The National League's leading vote-getter still has something to prove, however. Harper can secure his place as one of MLB's elite young players by winning the All-Star Game MVP like Mike Trout did last year. Since he won't be participating in the Home Run Derby, this will be Harper's one shot to show his skills.

Kris Bryant started turning heads with an incredible spring training performance, and he carried that success into the regular season with a .275 average, 12 home runs and 50 RBIs. At 23 years old, he's emerging as one of the brightest young stars in the game and can use All-Star weekend to display his talents. Bryant is also competing in the Home Run Derby this year, giving him the opportunity to become a household name for future seasons.

The Houston Astros are the biggest surprise of the 2015 season thanks in part to the dazzling performance of Dallas Keuchel. He's become one of the league's top aces, leading the American League in both wins (11) and ERA (2.14). Numbers like these deserve to place him on the rubber against a fierce National League lineup in the 2015 All-Star Game. He will certainly have something to prove in his first All-Star Game if he rightfully starts.
