The last time the Seattle Mariners hosted the All-Star Game was back in the early 2000s, and that is about to change.

Jeff Passan of ESPN reported that the MLB has chosen T-Mobile Park, the Seattle Mariners’ home stadium, to host the 2023 All-Star Game. The Los Angeles Dodgers, meanwhile, will host the game next year.

Seattle last hosted the All-Star Game on July 10, 2001, when the stadium was still known as Safeco Field. It was there that the American League defeated the National League 4-1.

While the MLB has yet to name the hosts for the 2024 and 2025 All-Star Games, it is certain that the Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park will host the game in 2026, just in time for the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence signing in Philadelphia.

The Tampa Bay Rays have never been selected to host the event, while teams like the Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles, and Texas Rangers last hosted in the 1990s.

This year’s All-Star Game was scheduled for Atlanta. However, MLB moved the game to Denver at the last minute in response to Georgia’s controversial voting law.
