Sporting News 2020 National League All-Stars: Braves lead the field; Betts, Machado, Realmuto pace voting

The Braves led by three players, while Mookie Betts of the Dodgers, Manny Machado of the Padres and J.T. Realmuto of the Phillies received the most individual votes in the voting for the Sporting News National League 2020 All-Stars, selected by a group of Dutch executives.

The voting for the honors took place in September and the results show a solid mix of teams with eight teams represented. Betts, Machado and Realmuto went up and down with seven votes each, while a total of 23 players received at least one vote. And for the first time thanks to the 2020 rules, voting in the National League included a designated batsman category.

Sporting News named its first MLB All-Star Team in 1925.
