The 2023 MLB All-Star Game ballot was unveiled Wednesday, with voting for Phase 1 open until 9 a.m. PT on June 22. The Los Angeles Dodgers have nine players listed for possible representation in the 93rd Midsummer Classic that is being played at T-Mobile Park in Seattle.
During Phase 1 of MLB All-Star Game voting, fans may select one player for each infield position in both leagues, three outfielders and one designated hitter. A write-in space is also provided for players who are not listed on the All-Star Game ballot.
During the first phase of MLB All-Star Game voting there is a limit of five ballot submissions per single, valid email address during any 24-hour period.
The top six outfielders and top two vote-getters at all other positions for each league will be unveiled June 22 on MLB Network at 3 p.m. PT, and advance to the second phase of voting to determine 2023 MLB All-Star Game starters.
Like in previous years, the leading vote-getter in each league during the first phase will be named an automatic starter. If an outfielder is a league’s leading vote-getter, Phase 2 voting at the position will still take place to determine the remaining two starters among the next four outfield finalists.
Phase 2 of All-Star Game voting begins at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 26, and closes at 4 p.m. on June 29. ESPN will then unveil All-Star Game starters later that night.
The pitchers and reserves for National League and American League teams – totaling 23 for each side – will be determined through a combination of “Player Ballot” choices and selections made by the commissioner’s office. The entire 2023 MLB All-Star Game rosters will be announced on Sunday, July 2, at 2:30 p.m. on ESPN.
