SEATTLE – The Mariners announced Tuesday the official date that Seattle will host the 2023 MLB All-Star Game at T-Mobile Park.
Next summer will be the third time in Mariners history that the team will host the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. According to team officials, the top National League and American League players will face off in Seattle on July 11, 2023.
“Major League Baseball is thrilled to bring the All-Star Game to the Mariners and their fans in 2023. The City of Seattle has hosted many of our game’s most popular personalities in recent history, and we look forward to to showcase current sports stars and all that All-Star Week has to offer throughout the Emerald City,” Baseball Commissioner Robert D.
