How to watch the 2019 MLB All-Star Game: TV, lineups, rosters and more

Through the beginning of the 2019 season, the Orioles campaigned for outfielder Trey Mancini to make the All-Star team, but in a turn of events, rookie pitcher John Means was selected to represent the Orioles.

Means will be the first Orioles rookie to play in the All-Star game since 1966. He did not expect to be selected, Means said, and it made him and his fiancée, Caroline Stanley, laugh when they found out.


To make sure you don’t miss seeing Means, whose 2.50 ERA is ranked second in the American League among pitchers with at least 80 innings, represent the Orioles in the All-Star Game, here’s what you need to know.
