The Chicago Cubs are one of the oldest franchises in Major League Baseball. They are also a team that plays in one of the oldest ballparks in league history. Wrigley Field is iconic and known worldwide by baseball fans all over the planet.
Some news came out on Thursday in regard to the MLB All-Star Game and the future locations of the mid-summer classic.
The 2023 version is going to take place at T-Mobile Park which is the home of the Seattle Mariners. That should be very fun as the Mariners are now one of the most exciting fun teams in the league.
The 2024 All-Star Game is going to take place at Globe Life Field which is a brand-new stadium and the home of the Texas Rangers. It should be really fun to see the big game (and Home Run Derby) played at a state-of-the-art stadium like that.
The 2026 All-Star Game is going to be at Citizens Bank Park which is home to the defending National League Champion Philadelphia Phillies. Any time that city is involved in something big sports-wise, it is must-see TV.
The Chicago Cubs could be getting the All-Star Game in the near future.
For some reason, however, the 2025 All-Star Game still remains a history. Bob Nightengale of USA Today named the Chicago Cubs as one of the leading candidates to land that event along with the Toronto Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles, and Atlanta Braves.
The fact that they are being considered for this one makes you think that even if they don’t get it, they are in line to have one soon. The next available year is 2027. That would certainly be an amazing event for the city of Chicago.
Both sides of town would be able to see their favorite players play in the big All-Star game if one of the two stadiums hosted the event which would be so fun. The last time that the All-Star Game was in Chicago was when the Chicago White Sox hosted it in 2003.
The last time that it was at Wrigley Field was in 1990. This would only be the 4th time in 100-plus years that they hosted it which is kind of crazy to think about. If something like this were to happen, everyone should be very excited. We can only hope that our teams are good by then.
