MLB All-Star Game Baseball Tickets
Cheer on your favorite player or league with MLB All-Star Game tickets. This annual baseball game pits All-Stars from both the American and National Leagues playing in Major League Baseball (MLB). The fielders are selected by the fans while the pitchers are selected by the managers. The first All-Star game was held in 1933 and played at Comiskey Park in Chicago and was a part of the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. Since the game is played during the middle of the season, it is known as the Midsummer Classic. There are no regular MLB games played starting the day before and up to days after the game, which is known as the All-Star break. The host team’s stadium will be designated as the home league. For example, when the 2019 MLB All-Star Game was played at Progressive Field, the Cleveland Indians and the American League were considered the home team. Currently, the American League (AL) has won 45 games while the National League (NL) has won 42 games. The 2020 MLB All-Star Game held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles had to be rescheduled due to the coronavirus. A reschedule date has not been announced.

Starting in 1989, the MLB permitted the use of a Designated Hitter during the MLB All-Star Game while playing at an American League stadium for both team leagues. Then in 2011, a DH was added permanently to the roster for both teams playing in the All-Star Game. Baseball games played in the National League, requires the pitcher to be included in the batting order, whereas the American League has no such restrictions but rather utilizes a DH.
Following a dispute from a tie game that occurred in the 2002 MLB All-Star Game hosted at Miller Park in Milwaukee, it was announced that winning league would be awarded home-field advantage during the MLB World Series. This practice lasted until 2016. Since then, a home-field advantage during the MLB Postseason has been awarded to the team with the better MLB regular-season record.
