His performance in Monday night home run derby It may disappoint some fans, but Angels star Masahira Otani has another chance to excite them in Colorado on Tuesday.
Ohtani will be the starting pitcher for the American League’s 2021 MLB All-Star Game. Oh yes, he will also lead as the team’s designated hitter, even after he leaves the game as a pitcher, he will have a second chance to hit the ball.
But the National League should not be fired because it brings ample firepower. Max Scherzer will start and the 22-year-old shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. will lead the NL.
The American League hopes to achieve 8 consecutive victories in the All-Star Game, which will be the highest record since the National League’s record of 11 consecutive victories from 1972 to 1982. The last time Midland won 7 consecutive victories was from 2003 to 2009. The only thing that prevented the 13-year winning streak was the 2002 draw, which was after AL’s five consecutive years of winning.
The following is a summary of how to watch the MLB All-Star Game, as well as the starting lineups and benches of both sides.
