Seattle last hosted the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby at Safeco Field in 2001. The Mariners also hosted the 1979 All-Star Game at the Kingdome.
The 2022 MLB All-Star Game will take place at Dodger Stadium on July 19. The Dodgers were supposed to host in 2020, but the game was rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Atlanta was meant to host in the summer of 2021, but the event was moved to Colorado’s Coors Field in protest of new voting laws.
