Background

Host selection

The Dodgers were awarded the 2022 MLB All-Star Game after the 2020 contest, which they were originally scheduled to host, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.[7] This marked the first time in 42 years (and fourth time overall) that the Dodgers hosted an All-Star Game, the previous occurrences being in 1949 at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn (when the franchise played as the Brooklyn Dodgers), 1959 at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and 1980 at Dodger Stadium.[8]

Roster selections

The starting rosters for each league's position players plus designated hitter (DH) were determined by fan balloting, which was conducted in two phases. New in 2022, the first-phase top vote-getter for each league automatically received a spot in the starting lineup.[9] The top two vote-getters for every other non-pitching position and DH advanced to the second phase of voting. There are normally six finalists for the three outfield positions in each league, except when an outfielder is the top vote-getter, in which case there are four finalists for the remaining two outfield positions. Voting does not carry over between phases.[9]

First phase voting was held from June 8 through June 30, and second phase voting was held from July 5 through July 8. All voting was conducted online, at MLB.com or via the MLB app. Starting players, as selected via voting, were announced on July 8.[10] Reserve position players and all pitchers—selected "via 'Player Ballot' choices and selections made by the Commissioner’s Office"—were announced on July 10. The final roster size of each team was planned to be 32 players.[9]

All-Star legacy selections

MLB announced on July 8 that Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera had been added as the 33rd player for the NL and AL, respectively, in celebration of their career achievements. This was the 11th All-Star selection for Pujols and the 12th for Cabrera.[11]

Logo and uniforms

The 2022 All-Star Game logo was shaped after the hexagonal DodgerVision video boards at Dodger Stadium, with gold-trimmed Art Deco lettering as a nod to Hollywood. This was originally unveiled as the logo for the canceled 2020 All-Star Game, but was ultimately recycled for the 2022 game.[12] Uniforms for the American League were in dark gray, while uniforms for the National League were in white. Team logos and letters were in gold with black trim. Caps were black featuring each team's logo in gold and black embellishments, along with a gold star.[13]
