The players who will start the encounter featuring the biggest names on the Manfred Tour have been selected by public vote.

Supporters had the opportunity to decide between the two most popular candidates for each position after an initial round of voting.

Kirk outshot Jose Trevino of the New York Yankees in the ballot for the catcher position, garnering 74 percent of the vote. Guerrero (66%) easily took the position at first base in his duel against Ty France, of the Seattle Mariners.

The other Jays nominees, Bo Bichette, Santiago Espinal, George Springer and Lourdes Gurriel Jr., were not honored on Friday. They could still participate in the All-Star Game, as the League will announce the identities of the other players selected on Sunday.

Jose Altuve (Houston Astros), Rafael Devers (Boston Red Sox), Tim Anderson (Chicago White Sox), Giancarlo Stanton (New York Yankees), Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani (Los Angeles Angels) will be USA starting team.

On the side of the National, the lucky ones are Wilson Contreras (Chicago Cubs), Paul Goldschmidt (St. Louis Cardinals), Jazz Chisholm (Miami Marlins), Manny Machado (San Diego Padres), Joc Pederson (Giants of San Francisco), Bryce Harper (Philadelphia Phillies), Mookie Betts and Trea Turner (Los Angeles Dodgers).
