Major League Baseball is hosting its annual All-Star Game in less than two weeks, and on Thursday, July 1, the league will announce the American League and National League starters. ESPN will broadcast the event at 9 p.m. ET and it will be available via live stream at WatchESPN and on the ESPN app.

MLB went with a new approach for voting this year, breaking it up into two phases. The preliminary phase ended last weekend and it resulted in a list of three finalists for each league’s offensive positions, and nine for the outfield. The second round of voting began on Tuesday and ends at 2 p.m. on Thursday. That will determine the starting players on each team. The full list of reserves will be announced on Sunday, July 4 at 5:30 p.m., also on ESPN.

Here is a current list of AL and NL finalists heading into the final day of voting. You can still vote at mlb.com/vote.
