MLB Network airs 2022 All-Star Game press conference from Dodger Stadium

As the Los Angeles Dodgers host the 2022 MLB All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium, the team is hosting a special event on Tuesday afternoon to officially kick off the countdown and reveal details about the week’s festivities and fan initiatives.

Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Clayton Kershaw, Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, Justin Turner, Cody Bellinger, Trea Turner and Walker Buehler are among those scheduled to appear.

Dodgers broadcaster Joe Davis and former SportsNet LA reporter Alanna Rizzo are the emcees for the press conference, and Chris Marinak, MLB’s director of operations and strategy, will also be on hand.

MLB Network is televising the 2022 All-Star Game press conference, which begins at 2 p.m. PT.

The All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium this season will be the first since 1980. Overall, this is the fourth time the Dodgers have hosted a Midsummer Classic.

In addition to 1980, they previously held the honor in 1949 (Ebbets Field) and 1959 (Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum).

The 2020 MLB All-Star Game was scheduled to be played at Dodger Stadium, but the signing event was canceled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

When is the All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium?

The 2022 MLB All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 19. The 2022 MLB Futures Game will also be played at Dodger Stadium on Sunday, July 17. The Home Run Derby is scheduled for Monday.

Nike designs All-Star jerseys

One of the biggest eye-catchers of the 2021 MLB All-Star Game was the uniforms worn by players and coaches. For the first time since 1933, MLB abandoned its tradition of having players dress in their own team’s yarns and instead had Nike make All-Star Game jerseys.

Nike has long worked on the All-Star Game design for Dodger Stadium, which will likely draw inspiration from the local community and the ballpark.
