The Major League Soccer All-Star Game is just about 24 hours away, but several players broke off after practice Wednesday to dedicate a new soccer field to an academy in East San Jose.

Right after practice at Avaya Stadium, some of the All-Star team came out to Ocala STEAM Academy to dedicate a brand new mini-pitch - a hard surfaced, fenced-in soccer facility.

The $50,000 field is part of an on-going commitment by major league soccer and sponsors to reach out into local communities.

The San Jose Earthquakes plan to build and donate 20 of these in the Bay Area.

Watch the video player above for the full story.
