After the theatrics of last night’s Home Run Derby, tonight we get the tradition of the All-Star Game. Tonight, we get the 89th annual MLB All-Star Game between the American League and the National League.

Four Yankees were named AL All-Stars this season, although Gleyber Torres and Aroldis Chapman will not take part in the game. That leaves two: Aaron Judge and Luis Severino

The most notable thing about the AL’s lineup from a Yankees’ perspective is Judge’s spot in the six hole. He is the only Yankee to have cracked the starting lineup.

Severino didn’t get the starting nod on the mound, but he is expected to be the second pitcher to take the mound for the AL.

For the 89th straight time, the NL lineup does not feature any Yankees.

Tonight’s game will air on FOX, and the game should start around 8-ish PM eastern. Come join us for this year’s Midsummer Classic!
