On Tuesday in Los Angeles, the Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be played. Since the Midsummer Classic was held there in 1980, this will be the stadium’s second All-Star Game. On Sunday night, the 2022 rosters were made public. The reserves are chosen by player voting and by the commissioner’s office, while the starting were chosen by fans.
You can catch the Chevrolet Red Carpet Show on MLB Network on Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET, the T-Mobile Home Run Derby on ESPN on Monday at 8 p.m. ET, and the All-Star Game on FOX on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET!
The game will, as usual, match the American League against the National League, with each league’s pennant-winning managers taking the same position. As a result, Dusty Baker of the Astros and Brian Snitker of the Braves are in charge of the AL and NL, respectively.
