It will be interesting to see what sort of stadium improvements or changes roll out over the next few years to prepare for the All-Star game.

Speaking with reporters on Wednesday after it was announced that the 2020 All-Star Game would be played at Dodger Stadium, Manfred hinted that those before him bore responsibility for the lengthy layover since the last time that the Dodgers hosted in 1980.

The video clip showed different Dodgers All-Stars from the past like Jackie Robinson and Sandy Koufax while highlighting present honorees like Clayton Kershaw and Corey Seager.

The Dodgers will finally get another turn after 40 years. "This is our home. and we can't wait", Scully said in the video.

It's official! The Dodgers will host the 2020 MLB All-Star Game in Los Angeles.


"There were really three important things that distinguished the Dodger bid", Manfred said during a Dodger Stadium news conference.

Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports that the Los Angeles Dodgers have been awarded the 2020 All-Star Game.

This will mark the first time since 1980 that the Dodgers have hosted the Midsummer Classic.

The Dodgers beat out the Chicago Cubs for hosting honors and will follow The Washington Nationals (who host this July), and the Cleveland Indians will host in 2019.
