The 2017 MLB All-Star Game will kick off Tuesday night at Marlins Park with Chris Sale squaring off against the Nationals' Max Scherzer as the starters on the mound.
This season, the exhibition game of America's pastime will be exactly as described: an exhibition with nothing on the line, not even homefield advantage for the World Series.
Despite all of the long-ball hitters and top pitchers in the contest, it has never been a homer fest or a pitcher's dual. Expect more of the same with average scoring and whoever gets a three or more run lead, control the rest of the ball game.
Will this be the year though the National League breaks through the American League dominance? The A.L. has won the past four All-Star Games and 11 of the past 14. There was a lone stretch where the N.L. won three years in a row from 2010-2012.
