Baseball fans, the all-star season has finally come! The first phase of voting for the Major League Baseball All-Star Teams launched on June 3, with the final results being announced on June 27, at 12pm EST.

HOW ALL-STAR PLAYERS SHOULD GET PICKED

The MLB All-Stars is run in an extremely unique way, with fans voting on which players should make it onto the American League All-Star Team, and the National League All-Star Team. When fans vote on all-star players, they tend to consider differing factors, but I personally think that the players who have performed best this season individually should be the ones who are most seriously considered. Instead of focusing all the attention on star baseball players and star power, the focus should be on how individuals performed during the regular season.

HOW TO VOTE

Fans can vote on all MLB platforms, including MLB.com, all 30 club sites and the MLB and MLB Ballpark mobile apps. In the US and Canada, fans can vote for any player on Google search by entering a player’s name. They can also go directly to the Google ballot.
