The last time Camden Yards hosted an All-Star Game was July 13th, 1993. Now almost 30 years removed, it’s time to bring the event back to Charm City.
Can you believe that since the last time the Baltimore Orioles hosted the MLB All-Star Game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the Seattle Mariners and the Pittsburgh Pirates have each hosted it twice? The Pittsburgh Pirates hosted the All-Star Game at Three Rivers Stadium in 1994, and at PNC Park in 2006. The Seattle Mariners hosted the 2001 All-Star Game and are scheduled to host it again in July of 2023.
Why hasn’t MLB selected OPACY to host the All-Star Game again? It’s about time! The Orioles should at least host again before the Seattle Mariners since the Orioles hosted before them in 1993. I’m sure fans from all over would love to come to Baltimore to take in the sites and sounds of Camden Yards.
With the new renovations being done in left-field, the Home Run Derby would now be more of a challenge for the top right-handed hitters in the game, which would make for great television and ratings. It just boggles my mind that Major League Baseball hasn’t announced that Oriole Park at Camden Yards will be hosting another All-Star Game.
It would be nice if they moved the 2023 All-Star Game that’s scheduled to be in Seattle and had Baltimore host since it’ll be exactly 30 years since the last All-Star Game in Baltimore. Baltimore wouldn’t be able to host it in 2024 as it will probably go to a National League team. Let’s hope that 2025 is the year that Oriole Park at Camden Yards is the host of the All-Star Game.
Do you think it’s a little insane that Oriole Park at Camden Yards hasn’t hosted the MLB All-Star Game in almost 30 years? Why do you think Baltimore has been shut out of getting the All-Star Game?
