The best players in baseball will be headed to Arlington, Texas, in two years. Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announced Globe Life Field, the home of the Texas Rangers, will host the All Star Game in 2024. The ballpark opened in 2020 and hosted several postseason matchups that year, including the World Series. The MLB All-Star Game was last held in Arlington in 1995.
"Congratulations to the Texas Rangers on being awarded the 2024 MLB All-Star Game," said Governor Greg Abbott. "Thanks to the hard work of the Rangers franchise and local leaders, Texas has once again proven itself to be a premier destination for business and America's pastime: baseball. The MLB All-Star Game will be a boon to our state's economy and tourism industry. I look forward to working alongside community partners to ensure we host the best All-Star Game of all time right here in the Lone Star State."
