All MLB Team - Best of 2019


By David A. Avila

It finally happened.

Major League Baseball under the recommendation of MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred set forth the first vote for an all Major League Baseball team decided at the end of the year.

Unlike the MLB All Star team that is picked during the mid-season, the all MLB team is decided at the end of the regular season by both fans and a committee of baseball insiders.

The three best outfielders are selected regardless of their position. Five starting pitchers and two relief pitchers are also picked. There were a couple of very close decisions to make including the shortstop position and third base. But with a second all MLB team also selected to makes this inaugural list very fair.

Here is the very first all MLB team in 2019:
