MLB All-Star Game voting: Who's on the final ballot?
LOS ANGELES - The Midsummer Classic is just two weeks away. Dodger Stadium is getting ready to host Major League Baseball's 92nd All-Star Game on July 19, but the rosters still aren't set.
This year's voting system is a little different from years past, with voting broken down into multiple rounds in 2022. Just like every other year, the first round of voting let fans vote for any player at any position. From there, the top vote-getter from each league secured an automatic starting spot. Voting for phase one closed on June 30. New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge snagged the American League's spot, amassing more than 3.7 million votes, while the National League's spot went to Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr., who got just more than 3.5 million votes.
Aside from the automatic starters, the top two vote-getters at each position — and top four outfielders — in each league advance to the All-Star Ballot Finals, for which ballots opened Tuesday.

This is just for position players. MLB players will get to vote on the pitchers and reserve players. They pick five starters and three relievers from each league, as well as one position player from each league.
Then finally, Rob Manfred's Commissioner's Officer will get to pick six more spots on each roster — four pitchers and two position players.
So who can you vote for and how? Voting is open now on MLB's website here. Ballots will be open until this Friday, July 8, at 10:59 a.m. Fans can vote once every 24 hours.
