It was a strange baseball season, to say the least, but certainly a compelling one.

But as one of the strangest years in Major League Baseball history is all said and done, many players still managed to make a huge impact despite a shortened slate.

And Wednesday they were rewarded for it, as selections for the All-MLB First and Second Teams were announced.

The Atlanta Braves, with three players making the cut, along with the San Diego Padres were the only clubs to see multiple players make First Team. The reigning World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers, meanwhile, saw Mookie Betts make First Team with Clayton Kershaw and Corey Seager making Second Team.
