Bryce Harper has an idea to make the Major League Baseball All-Star Game more exciting.
Harper wouldn't mind seeing the top two vote-getters select the teams regardless of league affiliations.
"It'd be great if let's say the two leading vote-getters by the fans did a draft system and could pick from both sides," he said. "So I could be facing Max Scherzer today -- I mean, nobody sees that. It would be a lot of fun to do something like that to make it a little more competition to face somebody on your team, like if [Clayton] Kershaw was facing Justin Turner, or Chris Sale facing Mookie Betts. That'd be a lot of fun."
This year, Harper and New York Yankees rookie Aaron Judge were the leading vote-getters.
Harper said he was happy that players were able to have fun at the All-Star Game with home-field advantage no longer attached to the game.
"I think it's great. Guys just being able to come in and relax and enjoy what we do. We play 162 games a year, so you're able to just come in here and hang out and enjoy being around your family and friends," he said. "I think with baseball your competition is going to be up there, of course. I don't think guys are going to take at-bats off or pitches off or anything like that. I think best record in baseball should have home-field advantage no matter what."
