On Thursday, MLB unveiled the prestigious All-Star openers, among whom Los Angeles Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani shone brightly, not only winning the distinguished title of designated starter but also representing the American League as its pitcher.

The 2023 MLB All-Star Game will feature notable players such as Adley Rutschman, Clayton Kershaw and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. as announced by the league. On Sunday night, MLB revealed the full list of 46 pitchers and reserves chosen by fan votes or commissions.
