Major League Baseball All-Star Game

The Major League Baseball All-Star Game, also known as the "Midsummer Classic", is an annual professional baseball game sanctioned by Major League Baseball contested between the All-Stars from the American League and National League. All-Stars are currently selected by fans for starting fielders, by managers for pitchers, and by managers and players for reserves. The game is usually played on either the second or third Tuesday in July, and is meant to mark the symbolic halfway point of the MLB season. Both leagues share an All-Star break, with no regular-season games scheduled on the day before or two days after the All-Star Game itself. Some additional events and festivities associated with the game take place each year close to and during this break in the regular season. No official MLB All-Star Game was held in 1945, including the official selection of players, due to World War II travel restrictions. Two All-Star Games were held each season from 1959 to 1962.
