The IBWAA MLB All-Stars!
The Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) conducted its third annual All-Star election. All IBWAA members were eligible to cast a ballot.
Each roster includes 20 position players with at least three catchers, two players at each infield position, five outfielders, and one designated hitter. Each roster also includes 12 pitchers with a minimum of six starters and two relievers. This year, the AL has an additional position player because Shohei Ohtani was elected as both a pitcher and a designated hitter.
