The All-Star Game
Date: July 9, 2019
Location: Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio – Home of the Cleveland Indians
New Voting Process: The way the All-Star game starters will be selected has been overhauled for the 2019 season. Previously, the fans would vote from a large roster of players from each position and each team in the league, with the highest vote-getters becoming the starters. Now, this round will be called the “Primary Round” and the top three players at each position—with the top six for outfielders—will then advance to the next round, where fans again will vote on a single day to decide the starters.
Home Run Derby $$$: To help try and get more high-profile players into the Home Run Derby—many stars have sat out in recent years—MLB has added cash incentives to the derby, with $2.5 million in total prizes and a $1 million prize for the winner.
Extra Innings: To keep the All-Star Game from going too long if it goes into extra innings, both teams will start the 10th inning and any inning thereafter with a runner on second to help increase the odds of scoring.
