2023 All Star Game Preview: New York Mets-Themed Edition

Pete Alonso, New York Mets

The 2023 season hasn’t gone according to plan for the New York Mets but there is plenty of time to reflect on that in the coming days. Today is a day to celebrate the best of baseball as the 2023 All-Star Game is set to be played tonight in Seattle. First pitch is scheduled for just after 8:00 p.m. at T-Mobile Park and will be televised nationally on FOX.

The American League will send New York Yankees’ ace Gerrit Cole (9-2, 2.85 ERA) to the mound as their starter. Cole, who is making his sixth All-Star appearance, will be making his first start in the Midsummer classic. The National League will counter with Arizona Diamondbacks’ righty Zac Gallen (11-3, 3.04 ERA), who will be making his first All-Star appearance and has played a big part in Arizona’s strong first half.
