The 2022 Major League Baseball All-Star Game is set for Tuesday night, as the sport’s best and brightest get together at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The All-Star Game concludes a hectic four-day stretch that featured the Futures Game on Saturday, the first 80 picks of the 2022 MLB Draft on Sunday and the Home Run Derby on Monday. This is the 92nd edition of the Midsummer Classic, and the first at Dodger Stadium since 1980.
The American League has dominated the All-Star Game in recent years. They’ve won the last eight, 15 of the last 18 and 20 of the last 24 All-Star Games. That said, the all-time series is only 46-43-2 in favor of the Junior Circuit.
Here’s viewing info for the 2022 MLB All-Star Game.
Brian Snitker, manager of the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves, will guide a National League club looking to end the American League’s eight-game winning streak. Houston Astros skipper Dusty Baker is managing the All-Star Game for the second time. Baker managed the NL in 2003 after taking the San Francisco Giants to the 2002 World Series, though he was manager of the Chicago Cubs that season. It was the first time in history an All-Star Game manager was not the manager of the team he took to the World Series the year before.
On the mound, Dodgers icon Clayton Kershaw will get the start for the NL club in his home ballpark. He will be the first pitcher to start in his home stadium since Max Scherzer got the ball for the NL at Nationals Park in 2018. Rays lefty Shane McClanahan, not Angels star Shohei Ohtani, will get the ball for the AL team. Kershaw vs. Ohtani would have been rather fun, though McClanahan is certainly deserving of the starting assignment. It is unknown whether Ohtani, who has never made a major league appearance out of the bullpen, will pitch in the All-Star Game.
