Major League Baseball announced its All-Star finalists Thursday after the completion of the first phase of voting.
New York Yankees superstar Aaron Judge received a majors-leading 3,762,498 votes, while Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. led the National League with 3,503,188 votes. As the leading vote-getters in their leagues, Judge and Acuna automatically receive starting spots in the 2022 All-Star Game on July 19 at Dodger Stadium.
There are two finalists at each position, except in the outfield, where there are four finalists for the other two starting spots outside of Judge and Acuna. The Toronto Blue Jays have the most finalists with six, while the Braves’ five finalists (besides Acuna) are the most in the NL.
Phase 2 of the All-Star vote runs from Tuesday at noon ET until Friday, July 8 at 2 p.m. ET. Players who weren’t named finalists can still make their league’s All-Star roster as reserves.
