2022 MLB All-Star Game Ballot: Voting for the Midsummer Classic is now underway in Los Angeles

USATSI

The 2022 All-Star League Baseball game is now being voted on. Head over to MLB.com and cast your vote, up to five times a day every 24 hours.

The first phase of voting continues until June 30 at 1:59 p.m. ET. Next, two finalists per position (six outside players) will be announced and vote totals reset for several ostensibly angry days of voting from July 5 to July 8.

The 2022 MLB All-Star Game will see Major League Soccer, headed by Astros captain Dusty Becker, take on the National League, led by Braves manager Brian Snitker. It will take place on July 19 at Dodger Stadium. The All-Star Game was last played in the Los Angeles area in 2010 (the Angels were hosted technically in Anaheim) and was last at Dodger Stadium in 1980.

Last week, I got a jump on things and Put my All Star Ballot.

Thanks to the internet and MLB staying on top of things, the ballot is much better than it used to be at staying on top of players who deserve to be included. Note, for example, Rangers catcher Jonah Heim, who kicked Mitch Garver into DH (Garver would have been the catcher early in the season). Bryce Harper’s inclusion of DH in NL was a thing of the season, exactly with the Giants’ catcher being Curt Casali and not Joey Bart.

There will always be criticism, but things like this show that the people in charge on the MLB side pay attention to what’s going on before the ballot paper is revealed.

Go and vote. There is no better time than the present.
