D.C. United's visit to square off with the Chicago Fire on Saturday is one of the weekend's marquee MLS matches, and not just because second place in the Eastern Conference is up for grabs.
The two front-runners for Rookie of the Year, Fire centerback Austin Berry and United midfielder Nick DeLeon, are set to do battle in the match with postseason implications and it will provide both of them one last opportunity to show why they should be named the top rookie of the 2012 class.
