The big change is that, for the first time in this event’s history, the All-Stars will not be wearing their own team’s uniforms but, rather, an All-Star Game-specific uniform. The jerseys feature the player’s team logo and city abbreviation on the left chest and the Nike swoosh on the right, with an American flag on the left sleeve and the All-Star logo on the right. The caps feature the player’s team logo against the backdrop of a purple star.
This will be the second time the All Star Game will be played in Denver. Coors Field was in its fourth season of existence in 1998 the last time the Rockies hosted the festivities.

The last All-Star Game in Denver featured 15 future Hall of Famers: Ivan Rodriguez, Jim Thome, Roberto Alomar, Cal Ripken Jr, Ken Griffey Jr, Derek Jeter, Pedro Martinez, Mike Piazza, Craig Biggio, Chipper Jones, Tony Gwynn, Larry Walker, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Trevor Hoffman.
The AL has the slight edge all-time -- 45 wins and 43 losses, with two ties. The scores of those 90 games add up to 373 runs for the AL and 370 for the NL, so the Midsummer Classic has been very closely contested in the big picture.

In more recent history, though, this matchup has been heavily skewed toward the AL, which has lost just six times going back to 1988, three times going back to 1997 and is undefeated going back to 2013.

• With a record-breaking 40 first-timers selected, is the third consecutive All-Star Game with at least 30 players making their debut on an All-Star roster. That number has been reached in seven of the last eight and nine of the last 11 installments of the Midsummer Classic.

• The rosters feature six players aged 23 or younger: Guerrero, Tatis and Soto are 22, and Acuña, Bichette and Rogers are 23.

• Though he is out with a calf injury, Trout has the longest active All-Star Game streak, having been selected to eight straight. Molina’s 10 overall selections are the most of any player on these rosters, followed by Trout (nine), Kimbrel (eight), Scherzer (eight), Altuve (seven), Chapman (seven), Cruz (seven), Perez (seven) and Posey (seven).

Will be interesting to see what Ohtani's arm is like today after hitting in the derby yesterday . . .
