History of the Los Angeles Dodger All-Star selections

The greatest baseball franchise has a rich history in the all-star game, with multiple MVP winners. You’d be hard pressed to find a Dodger pitcher who was scored upon in 58 years of Dodger all-star appearances.

LAD All-Stars from 1990 – 1999, the Mike Piazza era
