The votes are in for the first round of MLB All-Star voting, with fans selecting which players will be finalists to start the All-Star Game on July 16.

New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge and Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper led the first round of voting with more than three million votes each. As the top vote-getters in the American League and National League, respectively, Judge and Harper earn automatic All-Star berths at their positions.

Judge led all voting with 3,425,309 votes and will attend his sixth All-Star Game. He edged out teammate and fellow outfielder Juan Soto to take the top spot in the AL.

Harper earned 3,277,920 votes to lead the NL and earn his spot. The selection makes Harper an eight-time All-Star.

The top two players at each position, based on votes, move onto the second round of voting. With Judge and Harper's selection, only four AL outfielders are finalists, while the NL first-base position is officially filled.

The second phase of voting begins June 30. Vote totals are reset for the second round, so first-round votes do not carry over.

Pitchers and reserves will be chosen through a mixture of "Player Ballot" choices and selections from the Commissioner's Office. There will be 23 pitchers and reserves in total for each team. All-Star rosters will be announced July 7.

All-Star weekend will take place July 13-16, including the Home Run Derby on July 15 and the All-Star Game on July 16.
