All-Star Game MVP

Midseason hardware goes to the Midsummer Classic's top player in an award renamed for Hall of Famer Ted Williams in 2002. The award debuted in 1962, when it was given after each of the two All-Star Games that summer, and it's been given to one player since. Today, an online fan ballot counts for 20 percent of the vote, with the other 80 percent coming on-site from the Baseball Writers' Association of America and the announcers from the All-Star Game's broadcast rights holders.
