The Major League Baseball All-Star ballot finalists have been released, meaning the 2021 Mid-Summer Classic is right around the corner.
Three players from each infield position made the cut for the finalist list, along with nine outfielders from each league. (Pitchers are not voted on by the fans.)
This year's contest between the National League and American League – moved from its original host site in Georgia earlier this year after the state passed restrictive voting laws – will take place at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado on Tuesday, July 13. The Home Run Derby will be held one day earlier, with the Los Angeles Angels' Shohei Ohtani, Pete Alonso (New York Mets) and Trey Mancini (Baltimore Orioles) committing to participate so far.
