MLB All-Star Game

MLB All-Star Starters Announced

Everyone knows uSports’ feelings on the MLB All-Star game. While both basketball and hockey’s versions are entertaining — football’s Pro Bowl is a joke — baseball’s All-Star game holds weight because it matters. As previously mentioned, the winner gets home field advantage in the World Series, which is a big deal when considering the importance of a home crowd.

And with the festivities beginning in less than a week and the game exactly seven days away, the All-Star starters have been officially announced via MLB.

American League Roster

Now as most know, the World Series teams’ managers will lead their respective league on July 14. So the American League’s skipper will be the Kansas City Royals Ned Yost. And his roster is absolutely stacked.

Starters

1B: Miguel Cabrera, Detroit Tigers
2B: Jose Altuve, Houston Astros
3B: Josh Donaldson, Toronto Blue Jays

And if you did not get a chance to vote, there is still an opportunity to select one last American League player to the All-Star game: it is between Xander Bogaerts, Yoenis Cespedes, Brian Dozier, Brett Gardner and Mike Moustakas.

National League Roster

Now, San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy will be leading the National League, who also, unsurprisingly, has a stacked lineup.

And the five players vying for the final National League spot are Johnny Cueto, Jeurys Familia, Clayton Kershaw, Carlos Martinez and Troy Tulowitzki.

So tune in July 14 to see who will be victorious: the American League have won seven of the last ten years.
