MLB All-Stars able to use social media during HR Derby & All-Star Game


Social media will once again play a major role during both the Chevrolet Home Run Derby (@chevrolet #HRDerby, tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN) and the 84th MLB All-Star Game (@MLB #ASG, Tuesday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX). Forty-seven All-Stars are active on Twitter, with many also active on Instagram and other social networks.

For the third consecutive year, players will be able to use social media from the field throughout the Chevrolet Home Run Derby, both through their own personal devices or at computer stations set up on both sides of the field near the dugouts. In addition, after a successful initial launch during last year's All-Star Game, computer stations will once again be set up adjacent to each clubhouse allowing players -- once they are no longer competing in the game -- to quickly reach out to fans via social media while completing their other media obligations before returning to the bench. This initiative is a collaboration between Major League Baseball, the Major League Baseball Players Association (@MLB_Players) and MLB Advanced Media, with support from both ESPN and FOX for their respective events.

Below is a list of All-Stars currently active on Twitter, along with additional accounts expected to produce content during the events. Players who don't have personal social media accounts will also have the opportunity to participate by interacting with fans through the official MLB/MLBPA accounts.
