There are 34 first-time all-stars on two squads, evenly divided with 17 in each league.

The Colorado Rockies will be represented by starting pitcher Germán Márquez, selected for his first All-Star game. Pitchers Mark Melancon and Kevin Gausman were both born in Colorado, playing respectively at Golden and Grandview High Schools.
