The MLB All-Star Game is a yearly favorite for baseball fans everywhere. It’s never too early to learn about the Midsummer Classic.
The MLB All-Star Game will take place in Seattle, Washington at T-Mobile Park on Tuesday, July 11, 2023. That is about the only information we’ve received on the event thus far, including the Home Run Derby participants and more.
Major League Baseball’s All-Star festivities are arguably the best in professional sports. Pure competition is tough to replicate, and even though MLB took away the World Series home-field advantage element a few years back, the game itself remains as productive as ever.
"“I think with some of the shuffling that went on, (2023) became the more viable alternative,” MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said. “And I have to say, the Mariners did a fantastic job in terms of the up-tempo, the preparation. It takes a lot to pull off an All-Star Game, a lot of preparation and planning and (Mariners Chairman) John (Stanton) and his people did a fantastic job getting ready sooner.”"
How does MLB All-Star Game voting work in 2023?
For now, we don’t know when the polls will open, but the fan vote is the primary element in determining which players receive the invite to the Midsummer Classic. The fan voting can be done via MLB.com, and every team receives at least one representative, making every fanbase interested in the game itself (even Oakland A’s fans, yes).
Manfred and the league itself does a great job servicing its fans and keeping them engaged year-long with the All-Star Game and trade deadline, which will occur several weeks later at the end of July.
When does MLB All-Star Voting start?
MLB All-Star voting should start sometime in early June at the latest. The usual suspects are virtual locks to make the roster, such as Aaron Judge, Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani for the American League, and Ronald Acuña, Paul Goldschmidt and more for the NL. The rest, however, could be determined by you.
