MLB All-Star Game 2022: What you need to know about the Mid-Summer Classic


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The Major League Baseball All-Star Game is set to take place Tuesday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and will feature some of the game’s top rising superstars.

As tradition dictates, the American League will face the National League. There’s no fantasy draft format like there is for the NBA or the divisional teams competing like in the NHL. The NFL has also returned to conference games for its All-Star Game, called the Pro Bowl.

This year’s game will feature the best and the brightest, but will also be missing a few stars through injury. Mike Trout, Jose Altuve, George Springer, Yordan Alvarez, Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole Jazz Chisholm Jr., Bryce Harper, Nolan Arenado, Starling Marte, Corbin Burnes, Max Fried and Carlos Rodon and Josh Hader will not participate.

Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols were also put into the game as legacy selections due to their contributions to the game. The Detroit Tigers star said he plans to retire when his contract expires after the season 2023. The St. Louis Cardinals slugger announced he would retire at the end of the season.

The American League is on an incredible winning streak in this event. The AL have won eight straight games and lost only three times since 1996.
