Dodger Stadium to Host the Midsummer Classic for the First Time Since 1980

 

LOS ANGELES – Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced today that Major League Baseball has awarded the 2020 All-Star Game Presented by Mastercard and accompanying All-Star Week festivities to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 2020 Midsummer Classic will be the 91st edition in the event’s history, which dates back to 1933.

This marks the fourth time in franchise history that the Dodgers will hold the Midsummer Classic, including the third time in Los Angeles and the second at Dodger Stadium, which last staged the event in 1980. Previously, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was the site of the second All-Star Game of the 1959 season. In the franchise’s Brooklyn lineage, Ebbets Field hosted the 1949 All-Star Game, in which Jackie Robinson made his first National League All-Star team and batted second, behind double play partner Pee Wee Reese.

Commissioner Manfred said: “Major League Baseball is proud to bring the All-Star Game to Los Angeles and fans of the Dodgers in 2020. As last year’s World Series demonstrated, Dodger Stadium remains one of our game’s classic ballparks, and it will be a perfect venue to showcase the very best of the National Pastime. I congratulate the Dodgers organization and the leaders of Los Angeles on putting together an outstanding bid to host the All-Star festivities.”

Dodger President & Chief Executive Officer Stan Kasten said: “We’ve made no secret that bringing an All-Star Game back to Los Angeles was a priority for our ownership group, and we couldn’t be more excited for Dodger fans and to showcase Dodger Stadium and Los Angeles to a worldwide audience in 2020. We’d like to thank Commissioner Rob Manfred, Mayor Eric Garcetti and Councilmember Gil Cedillo for their efforts to secure this premier sporting event for our community, which will benefit from baseball’s legacy youth programs for years to come.”

The Mayor of Los Angeles, the honorable Eric Garcetti, said: “There’s no feeling quite like watching your favorite players take the field at the ballpark – and we can’t wait to welcome baseball’s best to Los Angeles for the 2020 All-Star Game. Dodger Stadium is a perfect destination for this summer tradition, and I look forward to sharing our city with fans from all over the world.”

Los Angeles City Councilmember Gil Cedillo said: “We are proud that Los Angeles is being recognized for the global city it is, being selected as the host for the 2020 MLB All-Star Game. Los Angeles is poised to bring this international event to Dodger Stadium. We welcome the best of the best in the realm of baseball for this special event.”

The Dodgers will follow the upcoming Midsummer Classic hosts, the Washington Nationals, who will hold this summer’s event at Nationals Park on Tuesday, July 17th, and the Cleveland Indians, who will welcome the 90th All-Star Game to Progressive Field in 2019.

About Tenth Avenue North:
Spreading truth and leading people to life is exactly what the members of Tenth Avenue North have been doing since launching the band during their college days in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The group made its national debut in 2008 on Reunion Records with Over and Underneath, which spawned the hits “Love is Here,” “By Your Side” and “Hold My Heart.” Tenth Avenue North won the Gospel Music Association Dove Award in 2009 for New Artist of the Year and in 2010 “By Your Side” was named Song of the Year.

The band gained further momentum with 2010′s The Light Meets the Dark and The Struggle in 2012 which continued to populate radio and the church with such memorable songs as “Healing Begins,” “You Are More,” “Losing” and “Worn.”

The Dove Award-winning band’s fourth studio album, aptly titled Cathedrals, is a collection of well-crafted songs that inspire community, encourage accountability and celebrate the fact we are not alone.

Lead vocalist Mike Donehey, drummer Jason Jamison, bassist Ruben Juarez, keyboardist Brendon Shirley and guitarist Jeff Owen have forged a unique sound that has made them one of the Christian music’s most successful young bands.

But for Tenth Avenue North, it’s never been about awards and industry accolades, but about reaching people with the truth.
