MLB All-Star Game ​

MLB All-Star Game, also known as the "Midsummer Classic," is a showcase event held annually by Major League Baseball (MLB) since 1933. The game brings together the best players in the league to play a special game. The event has been held at various venues since 1933, with 83 editions to date.

The first MLB All-Star Game was played in Chicago, Illinois, on July 6, 1933, and hosted by Mayor of Chicago Anton Cermak, the first mayor to die in office in over 100 years.


The game was held again at Comiskey Park in Chicago and was attended by then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Since 1934, when Major League Baseball began hosting all of its significant games at night, it has been traditional for the league's annual All-Star Game to be held during the evening hours so that fans can enjoy them after work or school.

The Most Valuable Player Award is given annually to one player from each league as voted on by fans. Other players who received votes include the newly created "Final Vote" winner selected by online fan voting. Each league's award is presented separately rather than as one trophy; each award winner is not considered an overall winner.

In past years Major League Baseball (MLB) announced plans to discontinue traditional furlongs of WBC games and instead have them contested under new rules similar to those used in other international competitions such as Olympic baseball or softball.

Scheduled for Tuesday, 19 July 2022, the midsummer classic is one of the sports' most anticipated events. The American League will host its counterpart, the National League.
