Some indoor events will be at the nearby convention center.
"No city and no city’s fans have supported their team like the Dodgers’ fans have," team President Stan Kasten said. "They are hungry for this game and they are very excited that we are finally going to have it."
The All-Star Game is July 19, 2022 at Dodger Stadium.
"I hope I make it," said Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, an eight-time All-Star. "All the road teams that come in and get to play here, they say what a great place Dodger Stadium is. We’re excited to share it."
Since it has been 42 years since they hosted, the Dodgers will be honoring Jackie Robinson, who wore No. 42 when he broke baseball’s color barrier with the franchise 75 years ago. His widow, Rachel, turns 100 on the day of the All-Star Game. Full schedule for the All-Star week is listed above. It's going to be an exciting time in Los Angeles.
