Former LSU Tigers DJ LeMahieu and Alex Bregman will both start in the MLB All-Star Game for the American League on Tuesday night at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

Bregman will also participate in Monday's Home Run Derby (8 p.m. ET, ESPN). Per

LeMahieu, in his first season with the New York Yankees, leads the American League with a .336 batting average and will start at second base in the All-Star Game. Bregman, who leads the Houston Astros in homers (23) and RBI (56), will be the AL’s starting third baseman.

The appearances of LeMahieu and Bregman mark the fifth straight year a former LSU player will participate in the All-Star Game.

LeMahieu will make his third All-Star Game appearance, his first as a Yankee. He was a National League All-Star in 2015 and 2017 with the Colorado Rockies, and he has won three Gold Gloves and one MLB batting title during his nine-year big-league career.

Bregman is representing the Astros in the All-Star Game for the second straight season – he hit the game-winning homer in last season’s midsummer classic and was named the MVP.
