The preliminary rosters for the 2017 MLB All-Star Game were announced Sunday, July 2. The American and National League teams figure to be much different (mostly because of injuries and pitcher usage) by the time the Midsummer Classic is played July 11 at Marlins Park in Miami.
Fan voting determined the starters for the game; the commissioner’s office filled out the rosters with input from the players.
The story line that many Major League Baseball observers are focusing on is that the 88th All-Star Game at Marlins Park in Miami is quite a bit different from every All-Star Game since 2003.
That was the first year that the All-Star Game was used to determine home-field advantage in the World Series. It was a decision that emanated from MLB commissioner Bud Selig, who had been thoroughly embarrassed when the 2002 All-Star Game in Milwaukee ended in a 7-7 tie. When that game went into extra innings and All-Star pitchers were in short supply, the game came to an end in ignominious fashion.
