Dodgers Reportedly Pursuing Bid To Host All-Star Game As Soon As 2020

The Dodgers are reportedly pursuing the rights to host the MLB All-Star game, with a possibility of it being as soon as 2020. Dodgers’ President Stan Kasten confirmed this on Thursday saying the team is in aggressive pursuit of the honor. This was reported by Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.

Plunkett also added a quotes from Kasten, in which he noted he believes they’re making progress on making this happen.

The last time that Dodger Stadium hosted an All-Star Game, the Dodger were well represented. This was of course all the way back in 1980. The Dodgers on the National League roster included Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Bill Russell, Reggie Smith, Jerry Reuss, and Bob Welch. If Dodger Stadium were to host the game in 2020, the roster could be just as full of Dodgers. Guys like Clayton Kershaw, Corey Seager, and Cody Bellinger along with countless others could all represent their team.

This may not happen in 2020, but that is the earliest year it’s possible. The 2018 host will be Washington, with Cleveland hosting in 2019. If the Dodgers can’t make 2020 work, expect it to be within the couple years that follow. With 2020 still having no host city, Los Angeles seems like a very likely option. While this is still far from a done deal, it seems increasingly likely that Los Angeles will soon be able to host another All-Star Game. Let’s hope it happens sooner than later and all of the Dodgers biggest stars get to play in front of their home fans.

What do you think of Dodger Stadium hosting the All-Star game in the near future? Let us know in the comments!
