CHICAGO, IL – The anticipation is building among baseball fans as Wrigley Field, the historic home of the Chicago Cubs, could soon see the return of the Midsummer Classic. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred recently hinted that the All-Star Game may once again grace Chicago’s north side.
During a press conference in Seattle, Manfred revealed his plans for upcoming All-Star Games, considering stadiums that haven’t hosted the event in recent years. With a keen focus on bringing the game back to long-awaited locations, Manfred expressed interest in Wrigley Field as a potential host for the All-Star Game in either 2025 or 2027.
Wrigley Field last hosted the All-Star Game in 1990 when the American League triumphed over the National League with a 2-0 victory. Since then, Wrigley Field has undergone substantial renovations, with over $500 million invested to enhance the beloved venue. Upgrades have included the addition of luxury boxes, a nearby hotel, and plans for a jumbo outfield electronic sign, adding modern amenities while preserving the century-old charm.
The excitement surrounding a potential All-Star Game at Wrigley Field builds on the rich history of the stadium and the Cubs’ passionate fanbase. Baseball enthusiasts eagerly await the official announcement, eagerly envisioning a return of the Midsummer Classic to one of the most iconic ballparks in the country.
