The MLB will have the whole night to themselves for the 2021 All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 13th. This will mark the 91st edition of the Midsummer Classic and the first since 2019. Last year’s All-Star festivities were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pre-game ceremonies are set to take place at 7:30 p.m. ET at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. While that is listed as the game start time, first pitch probably won’t end up happening until after 8 p.m.
Los Angeles Angels’ two-way player Shohei Ohtani will likely be the center of attention in this game as he was named an All-Star as designated hitter as well as a pitcher. He leads the majors in home runs and is third in RBIs. On the mound, Ohtani has a 3.49 ERA through 13 starts. What he has done this season has been historic, and he is worth paying attention to on Tuesday night.
Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash will be in charge of the American League team, while Los Angeles Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts will manage the National League. They will name the starting pitchers for each team.
The National League will enter as slight favorites at -115 odds according to DraftKings Sportsbook with the over/under set at 10.5 runs.
The All-Star Game can be seen on FOX.
