The Midsummer Classic is on July 16, less than 10 days away. Soon, MLB players and their families will descend on Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, for the All-Star Game, baseball’s celebration of its best and brightest players.

Who will those players be? MLB has put out tantalizing tidbits over the past week, but now the wait is finally over. The full rosters were released Sunday, with 32 first-time selections filling out half the field. The Philadelphia Phillies led the way with seven selections, trailed by the Los Angeles Dodgers, who secured six.

Here’s a quick refresher on how these teams were chosen. Each roster of 32 players was put together using a combination of fan voting, player voting and commissioner’s office choices. The fan vote determined the starting nine (eight position players plus designated hitter) for the American League and National League. Seventeen spots were then determined by voting from the players. And the six final spots on each team were filled by the commissioner’s office, which makes sure all 30 teams have at least one representative.
