The Toronto Blue Jays appear to be in the running to host the MLB All-Star Game in a few years.
According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, Toronto is one of five teams “in the mix” to host an MLB All-Star Game for 2023, 2024, or 2025.
The #MLB All-Star Game will be played at Dodger Stadium in 2022 and in Philadelphia in 2026, so MLB still seeking bids for 2023-2024-2025 with the #Rangers, #Cubs, #BlueJays, #Orioles and Atlanta strongly in the mix.

The Baltimore Orioles, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, and Atlanta Braves are the other teams reportedly competing with Toronto to get the Mid-Summer Classic in that time period.
Recently, the 2021 MLB All-Star Game was moved out of Atlanta due to new controversial Georgia voter laws. The event will now take place in Colorado.
Los Angeles has already been chosen to host the game in 2022, while Philadelphia will host in 2026.
The MLB All-Star Game has only been held outside of the United States twice before. In 1981, Montreal hosted the event, while in 1991, Toronto served as the host city. The last time Toronto hosted an All-Star game in any North American professional sport was the NBA All-Star game in 2016.
