The Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Game is an annual exhibition match between the best players from the American League and the National League, the two smaller leagues constituting the MLB. Also known as the “Midsummer Classic”, the MLB All-Star Game was originally played in 1933 at the World's Fair in Chicago, Illinois. It was to be a one time only affair, but its popularity led to the game being held annually. The game is played in July and marks what is roughly the halfway mark in the MLB season. It is played on the only two days during the season when no major sports events in America play. The MLB All-Star Game provides fans with the unique experience of watching their favorite stars from different teams play together.
Players in the MLB All-Star Game are selected by fan voting. The pitchers and reserve players are selected by the managers of the teams from the previous year's World Series. Typically, the managers of the game are the managers of the previous World Series as well. In order to make the outcome of the game more meaningful, the league that wins the All-Star Game gets home field advantage for the upcoming World Series. The most valuable player in each year's All-Star Game receives the coveted Arch Ward Trophy, named for the man who organized the first MLB All-Star Game back in 1933. Historically, the game has been reasonably even between the two leagues - the National League has won 40 and the American League 36.
Like many All-Star Games, the MLB All-Star game provides the unique experience of watching the world's very best baseball players play together rather than spread out on different teams. It also provides fans with a new venue to visit every year, and allows cities to showcase their facilities and their love and support for MLB baseball.
