Stream the MLB All-Star Break
Keep up with the Midsummer Classic.
Major League Baseball’s top players are getting together in Cleveland from July 7 to July 9 for the annual All-Star break. Here’s a rundown of events and the apps you can use to enjoy them.
Sunday, July 7
The MLB All-Star Celebrity Softball Game may be one of the least serious events of the MLB All-Star break, but that doesn’t make it any less fun. In this game—streaming in ESPN—past MLB icons team up with baseball-loving celebs; it’s worth watching for the on-field banter alone.
After the Celebrity Softball Game comes the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game—which you can stream in MLB At Bat. This game puts a spotlight on the top minor-league prospects in baseball. A couple of superstars who played in the Futures Game before making their MLB debuts: New York Yankees catcher Gary Sánchez in 2015 and 2016, Houston Astros second baseman José Altuve in 2011, and Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw in 2007.

Crushing it: That’s what the T-Mobile Home Run Derby is all about. In this contest—which you can stream in the ESPN app—the most powerful hitters face off in bracket-style elimination to see who can hit the most home runs, round by round. (Last year, superstar Bryce Harper won the Derby with 45 home runs in total.)
And while we’re talking Home Run Derby, make sure to check out the MLB Home Run Derby 19 game to see how many baseballs you can knock out of the park.

The 90th MLB All-Star Game, presented by Mastercard—and available to stream in the FOX Sports app—is the main event of the break. Rivals become teammates as fans and colleagues select the players in the dugout who will be given the honor to play.
Here’s how it works: Fans pick the starting lineups for the American League and the National League teams. MLB players and the AL and NL managers choose the pitchers and reserves, except for two—because the fans come back to vote on the 32nd and final roster spot for each team.
