Los Angeles Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani became the first player in MLB history to be named an All-Star as both a position player and a pitcher when the All-Star Game rosters were finalized Sunday.

Ohtani was selected as a pitcher after being voted into the game earlier in the week by fans as the American League’s designated hitter. The reserves and pitchers were announced to complete the American and National League teams’ 32-man rosters.
