This won’t be your typical All-Star break for Major League Baseball. It’s been two years since the last Midsummer Classic, so baseball fans will have plenty to celebrate during what will be an action-packed three days in Denver.
The 2021 MLB All-Star Game will take place Tuesday, July 12, at Coors Field after a decision to move the event from Atlanta this spring.
After being canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic and shortened Major League Baseball season in 2020, the festivities will return starting with the Futures Game on Sunday, July 11, the Home Run Derby on Monday, July 12 (8 p.m. ET on ESPN), and concluding with the All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 13. The 2021 MLB draft will also take place from July 11-13 in Denver (First-round coverage, Sunday, July 11, on ESPN).
With two-way sensation Shohei Ohtani among the first to commit to this summer’s Home Run Derby, it’s sure to be a star-studded week in the Mile High City.
