2019 MLB All-Star Game


Nina Zanghi

This year’s MLB All-Star game will take place at Progressive Field in Cleveland. The festivities will begin on July 5th and go until July 9th. The goal of this week is to blend baseball, food, activities, and music together into a fun festival.

One of the main attractions (beside the actual All-Star game) is the Play Ball Park. The Play Ball Park in an interactive family experience that will be the biggest it has ever been. Not only will this be the largest Play Ball Park, but for the first time it will be both an indoor and outdoor experience.

The indoor experience will take place in the Huntington Convention Center and the tickets are already up for sale, $25 for adults and $18 for kids and seniors. The indoor section will include interactive games, food, music and the chance to meet baseball legends. Some of the interactive games include a virtual reality batters box, the latest baseball video games, and much more.

The outdoor experience will have more of a “fan festival” vibe. There will be food trucks, a large concert stage, former players, and, to top it all off, a zip line that will send participants high above the crowds. This outdoor experience is completely free to the public.

Even though you might not be able to get tickets to the big game, there will be so many others things to do while the All-Stars are in town. When Junior Jordan Esposito heard about the event, he said, “The event sounds interesting.” So make sure to take full advantage of all of the festivities that will be in downtown Cleveland this July.
