DENVER — The MLB announced the 2021 MLB All-Star rosters on Sunday for the 89th edition of the Midsummer Classic.

The headlines for the rosters mostly come out of the American League. Los Angeles Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani is the first player named an All-Star as both a position player and pitcher, the Boston Red Sox have the most All-Stars and Vladimir Guerrero Jr., son of 9-time All-Star Vladimir Guerrero, led the MLB in voting.

The Guerreros are the 15th father-son duo in MLB history to each be named All-Stars and fifth father-son pair chosen to the game as starters. At 22 years old, Guerrero Jr. is the youngest player to ever lead in All-Star voting.
