The best players from the American League and National League will compete at Denver’s Coors Field on Tuesday, where all eyes will be on the Angels’ Shohei Ohtani, who led the majors throughout Saturday night’s games, and will also be the first player in baseball history to serve as both a pitcher and hitter during the All-Star Game. Viewers can also expect a good game from veteran Kansas City backstop Salvador Perez (who will be making his seventh All-Star appearance) in addition to rising newcomers Vlad Guerrero Jr. and Fernando Tatis Jr. who tied for 28 home runs during the majors. Another young star, Ronald Acuña Jr., set to represent the Atlanta Braves on the National Team, will miss the game due to a recent ACL tear.
The All-Star Game is particularly special for baseball fans, who have the ability to vote in the starting position players for each team, which consists of 34 players each. The eight pitchers and single backstop are selected by the players, while managers fill out of the rest of the roster.
