OFFICIAL: Zach Pfeffer added to MLS Homegrown Roster

The Union's first Homegrown Player, Pfeffer has been with the Union since the age of 15. Attacking midfielder Zach Pfeffer has been added to the league's 20-man roster that will take part in MLS's inaugural Homegrown Player Game, sponsored by Chipotle (and the approval of my taste buds).  The HGPs will take on Portland Timbers U23s on Monday, August 4th at 10 PM Eastern.  Pfeffer will be the lone Union representative during MLS All-Star Weekend.

Originally FC Dallas opted not to send any Homegrown players to this game due to their league match with Chivas USA the day before this showcase game.

Homegrown Game doesn't really seem to be much of a showcase

DeAndre Yedlin's removal from roster was long expected, but it does highlight some of the issues with the game. DeAndre Yedlin will not be playing in the Homegrown Game on Aug. 4.
