The Midsummer Classic will return to the Emerald City for the third time overall and first since 2001.

Seattle was formally unveiled as the host of the 2023 midsummer classic Thursday, making the announcement inside the Space Needle with Hall of Famers Ken Griffey Jr. and Edgar Martinez looking on. Seattle’s first All-Star Game was in 1979 at the Kingdome, and it hosted again 22 years later in 2001 at Safeco Field.

The idea that the Red Sox would go into their final homestand of the season fighting for a playoff berth seemed unlikely on Opening Day.
