The Texas Rangers and the MLB have officially unveiled the 2024 MLB All-Star Game logo ahead of the ’24 mid-summer classic, which will be held at Globe Life Field.
Arlington will host its second MLB All-Star Game, but the first since 1995, when 50,920 people packed Globe Life Park (then the ballpark in Arlington) to watch the AL take down the NL by a score of 3-2.
Rangers all-time great Pudge Rodriguez was the lone Rangers starter in that game, but next year could be slightly different, being just one year removed from having six starters in the 2023 mid-summer classic.
DFW will host not only the game but the home run derby, which takes place the night before, and all of the other all-star festivities that showcase the superstars of Major League Baseball.
When awarding the game to the Rangers in November, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said:
“Major League Baseball is pleased to award the 2024 All-Star Game to the Rangers and the Cities of Arlington and Fort Worth, which presented a robust bid for All-Star Week.”
According to the Rangers, most of the All-Star events will occur in Arlington, but some additional events will be held in Fort Worth.
During the logo unveiling, Rangers owner Ray Davis said:
“I’d like to say that Chris Young is going to do everything he can to make sure that Bruce Bochy is managing the American League next year.”‘
To Davis’ point, the game is coming to Arlington at the perfect time regarding baseball publicity in DFW. With the Rangers’ resurgence this season, attendance at Globe Life Field per game has increased by more than 6 thousand per game.
The 9th MLB All-Star game will take place on July 16th, 2024, with the Home Run Derby taking place on the 15th and the futures game taking place the weekend before.
2023 Rangers half or full-season ticket holders will receive guaranteed priority to purchase All-Star Game strips.
Additional tickets will be going on sale at a later date.
