The best baseball players in the world will share the same field Tuesday night at the 2021 MLB All-Star Game. Neither the American League nor National League team is thought to have much of an advantage, though all eyes will be on the AL’s top star when the contest begins.

Shohei Ohtani is set to make history at Denver’s Coors Field. The two-way star has been named the starting pitcher and leadoff hitter for the AL squad.

Ohtani competed in Monday’s Home Run Derby. The Los Angeles Angels star leads the majors with 33 homers. Ohtani was also selected to the game as a pitcher. Ohtani posted a 3.49 ERA with 87 strikeouts in 67 innings before the break.

The top of the AL starting lineup is loaded with power. Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who is tied for second in baseball with 28 homers and ranks first with a .332 batting average, will hit second. Xander Bogaerts and his .321/.385/.545 splits hits third. New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is in the cleanup spot.

The left side of the Boston Red Sox's infield will be on the field to start the game with third baseman Rafael Devers batting fifth. The Blue Jays lead have three starters with second baseman Marcus Semien batting sixth and left fielder Teoscar Hernández hitting eigth.

Washington Nationals starter Max Scherzer will be the first NL pitcher to face that vaunted lineup. The three-time Cy Young winner gets the start with a 2.66 ERA and a 134 strikeouts in the 2021 season.

New York Mets starter Jacob deGrom has been MLB’s best pitcher this season, but he’s skipping the All-Star Game.

Fernando Tatis Jr. is leading off for the NL. The San Diego Padres shortstop ranks first among all NL players with 28 home runs and a 1.020 OPS.

Max Muncy, who ranks fifth in MLB with a .972 OPS, is in the two-hole. Muncy is followed by St. Louis Cardinals star third baseman Nolan Arenado and reigning NL MVP Freddie Freeman.

Cincinnati Reds outfielders Nick Castellanos and Jesse Winker are batting fifth and sixth, respectively. Pittsburgh Pirates All-Stars Bryan Reynolds and Adam Frazier are at the bottom of the NL lineup.

The NL is a very slight betting favorite with -116 odds to win the game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The AL has -102 odds. The over/under is 11 runs.

The AL is on a six-game winning streak at the Midsummer Classic. The NL has only won three of the last 23 All-Star Games.

The All-Star Game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Fox.
