Players in the MLB All-Star Game are selected by fan voting. The pitchers and reserve players are selected by the managers of the teams from the previous year's World Series. Typically, the managers of the game are the managers of the previous World Series as well. In order to make the outcome of the game more meaningful, the league that wins the All-Star Game gets home field advantage for the upcoming World Series. The most valuable player in each year's All-Star Game receives the coveted Arch Ward Trophy, named for the man who organized the first MLB All-Star Game back in 1933.
Like many All-Star Games, the MLB All-Star game provides the unique experience of betting on the world's very best baseball players play together rather than spread out on different teams.
MLB Home Run Derby and All-Star Workout
The game's biggest sluggers crank out ball-after-ball into the stands until one pine-slinger stands alone as the Home-Run Champion. A true fan favorite; this is one event that you'll want to bet on!
The Home Run Derby, a contest among the sport's top home run hitters, is played on the day before the All-Star Game. In the 2002 All-Star Game, following a highly controversial tie when both teams ran out of pitchers in the 11th inning, the MLB changed the rules to give the All-Star Game new meaning and additional incentive for victory.
The 2013 game will be the 84th edition of this mayor league event.
