Major League Baseball announced Friday in a statement that the 2020 All-Star game has been canceled.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were supposed to host it, but they will now host it the event in 2022.
“Once it became clear we were unable to hold this year’s All-Star festivities, we wanted to award the Dodgers with the next available All-Star Game, which is 2022,” said MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred. “I want to thank the Dodgers organization and the City of Los Angeles for being collaborative partners in the early stages of All-Star preparation and for being patient and understanding in navigating the uncertainty created by the pandemic. The 2022 All-Star celebration promises to be a memorable one with events throughout the city and at picturesque Dodger Stadium.”
Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten said that "as excited as we were to host this year’s All-Star Game, we know that it will be worth the wait and that Dodger Stadium and Los Angeles will host a world-class event in 2022."
The Major League Baseball season resumed on Wednesday with players reporting to training and games are scheduled to start on July 23 or 24.
