This year is a benchmark in Major League Baseball history as it is the first year in the 88 years that the All-Star game has existed, that the game will not determine who has home field advantage in the World Series. This was a very controversial issue as both the fans and players want to simply enjoy this game while not worrying about any implications if they did not win.

At the same time, however, the MLB wants to make this game worth something so it draws more attention and bring out the best in the players competing in it.

With the more progressive approach the MLB is taking in regard to rules and regulations, it is no surprise that they made this change.


Either way, MLB all-star weekend is always a fan favorite with all the events that take place.
