It’s time for a Dodgers All-Star Game.
The Dodgers confirmed Wednesday the 2020 All-Star Game will be played at Dodger Stadium.
After rumors circulated Tuesday night that the annual game would be coming to Dodger Stadium for the first time in 40 years, the team released a Vin Scully-narrated video letting everyone know the reports were true.
The video clip showed different Dodgers All-Stars from the past like Jackie Robinson and Sandy Koufax while highlighting present honorees like Clayton Kershaw and Corey Seager.

Scully described Dodger Stadium and set the scene in the same epic way he called baseball for 66 years.
“This is more than steel, concrete, dirt and grass. This is our home… and we can’t wait,” Scully said in the video.
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred released a statement Wednesday following the announcement.
“Major League Baseball is proud to bring the All-Star Game to Los Angeles and fans of the Dodgers in 2020. As last year’s World Series demonstrated, Dodger Stadium remains one of our game’s classic ballparks and it will be a perfect venue to showcase the very best of the National Pastime,” Manfred said.

The last time the Dodgers hosted was in 1980, a game that Los Angeles pitcher Jerry Reuss actually got the win. The 2020 All-Star Game will be the fourth held by the Dodgers in franchise history.
Before the game goes to Dodger Stadium, this year’s exhibition will take place at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. on July 17 followed by Cleveland in 2019.
