Beginning today, you can make your picks for which position players should be in the starting lineups for the 2022 MLB All-Star Game.

Phase 1 of All-Star voting opened at 11:59 a.m. ET on Wednesday and will continue until 2 p.m. ET on June 30. During Phase 1, fans around the world can fill out a 2022 Chevrolet MLB All-Star Ballot as many as five times per every 24-hour period. You can vote exclusively at MLB.com, on all 30 MLB club sites and on the MLB app.

The top two vote-getters at each position, including designated hitter, and the top six outfielders in each league will be revealed on MLB Network at 5:00 p.m. ET on June 30. The leading vote-getter in each league will receive a spot in their team’s starting lineup while the other top vote-getters will advance to Phase 2 of voting. If an outfielder is a league’s leading vote-getter, only the next four outfield finalists will move on to Phase 2 to determine who starts at the two remaining spots.

The second phase of All-Star voting will begin at noon ET on July 5 and continue until 2 p.m. ET on July 8. During this period, fans can vote only once for whom they want to see in Midsummer Classic, and vote totals from Phase 1 don’t carry over.

This will all lead up to the 2022 Chevrolet MLB All-Star Starters Reveal show on July 8.

The pitchers and reserves for both squads — totaling 23 players for each side — will be determined via “Player Ballot” choices and selections made by the Commissioner’s Office. The complete All-Star rosters will be announced during the 2022 Chevrolet MLB All-Star Selection Show on July 10.

The All-Star Ballot will offer audio CAPTCHA functionality for visually impaired fans. Banco BHD León will sponsor online All-Star balloting in the Dominican Republic, making Spanish-language ballots available to fans in the Dominican Republic via LasMayores.com, the official Spanish-language website of Major League Baseball.

Brian Snitker of the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves and Dusty Baker of the Houston Astros will serve as the National League and American League managers, respectively. Baker, a two-time All-Star as a player, previously served as manager of the NL All-Stars in 2003. 

The 92nd Midsummer Classic will mark the second to take place at Dodger Stadium. The first came in 1980, when the NL triumphed, 4-2. The American League, which won last season’s game at Coors Field, 5-2, has taken eight consecutive All-Star Games and 26 of the previous 33.
