MLB All-Star Game: Rosters rounded out with pitchers, reserves


Baseball’s top talents are going to Hollywood.

The complete 2022 MLB All-Star Game rosters were announced on Sunday with the reveal of pitchers and reserves. Position player starters were revealed on Friday.

While starters were selected using fan voting, the remaining All-Stars were named using the player ballot and input from the Commissioner’s Office. Another wrinkle that comes into play is each MLB team must have at least one selection for each All-Star Game.

Here’s a look at the players from each league who will be heading to Dodger Stadium following Sunday’s selection show:
