CLEVELAND — With the 90th annual Midsummer Classic MLB All-Star Game just around the corner, four of Cleveland’s own will represent the Tribe in the All-Star Game.

Carlos Santana, Francisco Lindor, Brad Hand and Shane Bieber will represent the American League. Although the Indians are well represented, it didn’t seem like quite enough. That’s why we thought it would be fun to create an All-Star roster made up entirely of Indians All-Stars, past and present.

We took to Twitter and held a vote for who Cleveland would select to each position on their roster of all-time Indians All-Stars. To make the list, the player had to have been selected to the All-Star Team for their position while with the Indians.

After tallying the votes, your final all-time Indians All-Star roster has been set:

All-time All-Star Indians roster

It appears the fans would take the legendary 90s Indians in almost every position -- no surprise there.

The actual All-Star Game takes place tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Progressive Field.
