A number of familiar names made the cut, with two-time MVP Miguel Cabrera starting at first base for the American League, and Mike Trout joining him in the outfield. For the National League, Buster Posey, Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton will start.
But the leading vote-getter was Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson, who will appear in his second midsummer classic.
