As mentioned, the main event will be held at Globe Life Field on Tuesday, July 16th.

The Futures Game, a favorite amongst prospect hounds, will take place on Saturday, July 13th, followed by the Celebrity Softball game, which is always a hilarious example of how not to play softball. The opening night of the 2024 MLB Draft, a relatively new addition to the All-Star festivities, will go down on Sunday, July 14th, followed by the ever anticipated Home Run Derby, which comes that Monday night.
