Dodgers pitcher David Price announced he won’t play this season

MLB cancels All Star Game for first time since 1945

Major League Baseball is cancelling the 2020 All-Star game over concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic and restricting on mass gatherings, the league says.

Former Detroit Tigers pitcher David Price became the most prominent Major League Baseball player to opt out of the 2020 season, announcing Saturday that he would decline to play because "it is in the best interest of my health and my family's health".

The 2020 MLB All-Star Game has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The MLB is now slated to begin playing a 60-game season on either July 23 or 24.

L.A. Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten responded to Manfred, thanking him for giving L.A. the chance to host the 2022 All-Star game. The 2021 All-Star Game is already scheduled to take place in Atlanta. "The 2022 All-Star celebration promises to be a memorable one with events throughout the city and at picturesque Dodger Stadium".

This marks the first year since 1945 that an All-Star game has been canceled.

As was the case with the 1999 & 2002 NBA All-Star Games and the 2013 & 2015 NHL All-Star Games, the 2020 & 2022 MLB All-Star Games will share the same logo. The 1980 game was the only one at Dodger Stadium.
