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