2018 All-Star Game

The 2018 All-Star Game, the 89th edition of the midsummer Classic, is slated to be held on July 17th at Nationals Park in Washington, DC. It will be the fourth straight year the game is held in a National League ballpark. The logo for the game features an outline of the dome of the U.S. Capitol in front of a flag-themed background.

Major League Baseball proposed a change to the rules for the game, to ensure it does not linger into long extra innings. In case of a tied score, starting in the 11th inning, teams would start with a runner on second base. This is a variation of the Schiller Rule already in use in the World Baseball Classic and various other competitions.
