Two teams are in the World Series, and you have to be on their rosters to play. They are not "chosen". At the shortest, the World Series will be four games, which will be long enough to use up the entire staring pitcher line-up, so everyone gets a turn. Did you mean the All-Star Game? Pitchers do get chosen for the All-Star Game and are not voted. The manager who wins Manager of the Year Award gets to manage their All-Star team and select the pitchers for that year's game.
