5 Blue Jays went to the MLB All-Star Activity in Los Angeles this season. But in a couple of decades, the party may possibly be coming to them.
The Jays are conversing to Key League Baseball about likely hosting the 2027 Midsummer Vintage, Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reviews. The Blue Jays past hosted the All-Star Match in 1991, at then-Sky Dome.
Toronto’s likely bid for the 2027 sport would coincide with a short while ago permitted renovations of the Rogers Centre. “Significant updates” to Toronto’s property park will occur around the following two offseasons, Blue Jays CEO Mark Shapiro introduced through Spring Coaching, with the job expected to finish in 2024.
Right after Los Angeles hosted the All-Star Video game this July, the up coming two Midsummer Classics are by now planned with the 2023 game heading to Seattle and 2026 in Philadelphia. The 2024 and 2025 All-Star Online games are “assumed to be spoken for,” Davidi reports, but no place has been introduced.

Though talks are currently preliminary, the Blue Jays would have to current a program to host the All-Star festivities, which now contain the MLB Draft, Futures Activity, Dwelling Run Derby, media working day, and the precise All-Star Game. The proposal would most likely need to have some sort of neighborhood authorities backing, but the framework for a effective occasion could be built off Toronto’s latest web hosting of the NBA All-Star Video game in 2016.
