MLB All-Star Game 2022: Live updates, how to watch the Midsummer Classic at Dodger Stadium

·3-min read

The Midsummer Classic is back at Dodger Stadium. The legendary, picturesque Los Angeles venue will play host to MLB’s All-Star Game for the first time since 1980 on Tuesday night. This night was originally scheduled to take place in 2020, but the All-Star Game was canceled as MLB condensed its schedule during the pandemic.

Dodgers legend Clayton Kershaw will start for the National League in a made-for-Hollywood moment. Tampa Bay Rays starter Shane McClanahan will go for the American League.

The original starting lineups were chosen via a fan voting process, with the pitchers and reserves selected by player ballots and the league office. Commissioner Rob Manfred used a new rule to add a legend to each roster, Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera in the AL and retiring St. Louis Cardinals icon Albert Pujols in the NL. Due to injuries and players dropping out, quite a few replacements joined the roster.

The game is a culmination of almost a week of festivities that included the Futures Game, the MLB draft and Juan Soto’s Home Run Derby triumph.

The American League All-Stars have won eight All-Star Games in a row. Can the NL change its fortunes with Clayton Kershaw on the mound at home? Well, it’s only a slight lean, but BetMGM had the NL as favorites to break the streak.

The over/under sat at 7.5 runs on Tuesday morning.

Has the All-Star Game format changed?

The game itself will look the same, unless it goes to extra innings. MLB announced Monday that if the game is tied after nine innings, a home run derby will settle it. Each side would get three hitters.

Managers Brian Snitker and Dusty Baker already chose their trios. And if you didn’t get enough of Seattle Mariners rookie Julio Rodriguez during his scintillating Home Run Derby performance, root for the tie.

Kyle Schwarber, Philadelphia Phillies

The game does not have any sway over World Series home-field advantage, as it did for a few years.
