We are in late 2022, yet MLB is already planning ahead, as they should.
The MLB All-Star Game was in Los Angeles this year, and it left us many lasting memories and performance.
Next year’s edition will be in Seattle, as T-Mobile Park will be ready to host the All-Star weekend and all festivities and games.
What about the 2024 edition?
We have some news for you.
“The Midsummer Classic is coming back to Arlington! @GlobeLifeField will host the 2024 @MLB All-Star Game,” the Texas Rangers announced via Twitter.

It’s the second time the Rangers will host an All-Star Game: the first one was in 1995.
That game was played at The Ballpark in Arlington, which was constructed as a replacement for nearby Arlington Stadium and opened in April 1994.
Globe Life Field Will Host The Midsummer Classic In 2024
This one will be played at Globe Life Field, the Rangers’ stadium since 2020.
The 2020 National League Championship Series and the 2020 World Series were played exclusively at Globe Life Field.
Now, we can go ahead and add another major event to its short history: the 2024 All-Star Game.
“Major League Baseball is pleased to award the 2024 All-Star Game to the Rangers and the Cities of Arlington and Fort Worth, which presented a robust bid for All-Star Week,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement, according to the league’s official site.
“The Rangers stepped up under difficult circumstances and Globe Life Field served as terrific host for the 2020 Postseason, including the World Series. We are excited to once again feature Baseball’s newest ballpark on a global stage next summer.”
