The 2023 Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be the 93rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game, here’s the schedule of the game.
2023 Major League Baseball All-Star Game: Schedule
Major League Baseball announced that the Seattle Mariners, T-Mobile Park and the City of Seattle will be home to 2023 All-Star Week.
This marks the third time in franchise history the Mariners will host the Midsummer Classic (1979 – Kingdome, 2001 – Safeco Field).
Get ready for an unforgettable week in July 2023 featuring the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, T-Mobile Home Run Derby, the 93rd edition of the All-Star Game presented by Mastercard and additional festivities throughout Seattle.
The splendour and natural wonder of the Pacific Northwest is the inspiration and focus of the 2023 Major League Baseball All-Star Game logo, unveiled tonight by its host, the Seattle Mariners, just before their game against the Houston Astros.
Featuring the Mariners’ primary colour scheme of Northwest green, navy, and silver with a bit of yellow thrown in there, the logo pays tribute to both the nature and city sides of life in the region.
In the upper left, we see the skyline of Seattle with its famous Space Needle, this transitions into a silhouette of navy blue evergreen trees in the upper right. Behind everything, the dominating presence of Mount Rainier towers above them, all with a setting sun in the distance.
The design was a collaboration between Major League Baseball and the Seattle Mariners, with the league taking the lead on the design side of things and the Mariners providing feedback on what they wanted for the game’s identity.

The game is scheduled to be played in July 2023 and will be televised nationally by Fox. The game will be hosted by the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington.
Important design elements in the 2023 All-Star Game logo include Northwest Green woven throughout, the compass star pointing Northwest, and the shape of the logo representing the Pacific Northwest five-state region. The Space Needle is purposefully tucked within the trees and Mount Rainier.
This will be the second time the ballpark has hosted the MLB All-Star Game. The first was in 2001 when the ballpark was known as Safeco Field.
It was best known as the final All-Star Game for two legends of the game, Cal Ripken Jr. (who homered to drive in the first run of the game) and Tony Gwynn.
It was a big night for the Mariners on the field, with Freddy García the winning pitcher and Kazuhiro Sasaki picking up the save. Seattle also hosted the All-Star Game in 1979 at the Kingdome.
The Mets’ Lee Mazzilli was the star in a 7-6 NL win, tying the game in the eighth with a pinch-hit homer and then walking in the winning run off the Yankees’ Ron Guidry.
In the last two years T-Mobile Park has undergone a series of renovations, including the overhaul of several group spaces.
The game is set for July 2023, but specific dates and ticket prices have not been announced. The Mariners will begin the sales process by offering season-ticket holders priority access to purchase 2023 All-Star Week ticket strips.
