"It's awesome, so happy for them, their families" said Vogt.
"What a cool honor to represent the American League in the starting lineup and represent the Guardians there. We couldn't be more proud of those two and the fans for getting out and voting for them."

In addition to Ramirez and Kwan starting for the American League, the Guardians also had three additional players selected as reserves which gives them the most all stars on the American League Team.
