The hitters are usually the main attraction at the MLB All-Star Game, but the collection of pitchers on hand this year is quite impressive.

Fans usually do not like watching a pitcher's duel against the great lineups that are put together. However, getting to see the top pitchers in the game all in one place performing for an inning or two is as good as baseball gets.

This year, there is a solid collection of younger faces reaching the game for the first time as well as big names that have already earned Cy Young awards in their careers.

There are 27 pitchers on the active rosters of the two teams, but a few of them are the guys to really focus on during the game.
