Freddie Freeman was one of many superstars in Major League Baseball who had been snubbed by not being added to the All-Star Game rosters.
However, that mistake has been corrected.
Freeman will be playing in his home stadium if he gets a chance to enter the game at any point.
After signing with the Dodgers on a six-year, $162 million deal, Freeman has not disappointed.
Though his power numbers are slightly down, he’s still hitting .321 with 59 RBI.
MLB tweeted the news about Freeman being added to the NL All-Star squad.

Freeman Headed To The ASG
It’s good that Freeman was ultimately added to the All-Star roster.
Despite having hit just 13 home runs on the season, his other numbers have been pretty good, and he deserves a chance to be an All-Star.
Not only will he be playing in front of the home fans in Los Angeles, but he’ll also have a chance to play under former manager Brian Snitker one more time.
The Atlanta Braves manager is the one managing the All-Star game for the NL by virtue of his team reaching the World Series a year ago.
Freeman will have a chance to also play alongside some of his former Braves teammates.
Freeman will get the opportunity to play alongside his old teammates one more time as well.
Freeman will be a reserve on the roster, as Paul Goldschmidt earned the nod to start for the NL squad.
