Shohei Ohtani to repeat as designated hitter in MLB All-Star Game

NY- Shohei Ohtani became the first player chosen to start at designated hitter for a fourth straight year in an All-Star Game, joining New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge as the only repeat starters in the lineups announced Wednesday for the July 16 game in Arlington, Texas.

Philadelphia could have three of the NL’s four infielders after fans voted for shortstop Trea Turner and third baseman Alec Bohm to be starters, joining first baseman Bryce Harper, whose status is uncertain because of a leg injury.

Major League Baseball said it is the first time each league has not had more than one repeat starter selected since fan voting was reintroduced in 1970.

Six teams are providing two starters each: Yankees outfielder Juan Soto was chosen along with Judge, who was the top vote-getter with Harper in the first round. The second round ran from Sunday through Wednesday.
