T-Mobile Park is already home to some Seattle Mariners all-stars, like center fielder and 2022 Rookie of the Year Julio Rodríguez, first baseman Ty France, cool-as-hell shortstop J.P. Crawford, big-hitting outfielder Jarred Kelenic, record-breaking rookie pitcher Bryce Miller, and all-star-in-my-heart third baseman Eugenio Suárez. But come July, the church formerly known as Safeco will be home to the best of the best courtesy of the 2023 MLB All-Star Game (the league’s third time swinging by Seattle).
The big game is on Tuesday, July 11th, at 5 pm, but there’s plenty to do if you cannot get tickets to the biggest event and still want to be part of the festivities.
FRIDAY, JULY 7th
- The inaugural HBCU Swingman Classic, which will open up the field to 50 Division I student athletes as chosen by a committee that includes Mariners hall-of-famer Ken Griffey Jr., all while highlighting the history of Historically Black Colleges and Universities
SATURDAY, JULY 8th
- The SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, featuring tomorrow’s brightest stars
- The MLB All-Star Celebrity Softball Game, chock full of pop culture icons doing their damnedest
SATURDAY, JULY 8th THROUGH TUESDAY, JULY 11th
- The Capitol One PLAY BALL PARK at Lumen Field, which includes several events perfect for fans of all ages (like the MLB Gaming Zone) and an opportunity to meet some of the game’s biggest legends

MONDAY, JULY 10th
- The Gatorade All-Star Workout Day, for those loveable nerds who like to show up to games really, really early
- The Home Run Derby, which is entirely self-explanatory. Last year, golden boy Julio made it all the way to the top two but lost to fellow Dominican outfielder Juan Soto by one home run. Maybe this is his year, but they’ll have fun smacking balls into the stratosphere regardless.
