Major League Baseball announced its full All-Star Game rosters on Sunday, with reserves and pitchers joining the starters who won the fan voting that was revealed Friday.

The Yankees, who have the best record in baseball, lead all teams with six players selected. Mariners rookie outfielder Julio Rodriguez, 21, is the youngest of the 30 first-time All-Stars.

The game will be played on Tuesday, July 19 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, which was supposed to host the 2020 All-Star Game that was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
