Dodgers Rumors: Dodger Stadium To Host 2020 MLB All-Star Game
This Day In Dodgers History: Fans Cause Forfeit At Dodger Stadium

As it currently stands, the Los Angeles Dodgers have gone the longest of all Major League Baseball franchises without hosting the MLB All-Star game. It was last held at Dodger Stadium in 1980.

The next closest organization is the Washington Nationals, who hosted in 1982 when they were the Montreal Expos. The Nationals are ending their drought the 2018 game, with the Cleveland Indians to follow in 2019 at Progressive Field.

No team has been awarded the 2020 game yet, although the Dodgers have been in pursuit of it for a while.

It appears their efforts may have been worthwhile, as according to Bill Plunkett of the Southern California News Group there is expected to be an official announcement on Wednesday that the Midsummer Classic will be returning to Chavez Ravine:

The venue for each All-Star Game is chosen subjectively by an MLB selection committee, so they must have believed it would be good for the league to have the game return to Southern California.

The 2020 season is still a couple years away, but looking ahead, some Dodgers players that may be representing the franchise in the All-Star Game could include Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, Alex Wood, Kenley Jansen, and of course, Clayton Kershaw should he remain with the organization beyond this season.

Prospects such as Walker Buehler, Alex Verdugo and D.J. Peters could also be possibilities if they continue to develop at the rate they have in the last couple years.
