MLB All-Star Game 2017: Time, TV coverage, and how to watch online

The Rockies will have four players in action tonight in Miami

Tonight the Midsummer Classic comes to Miami, Florida, for the first time. The MLB All-Star Game starts at 6 p.m. MT from Marlins Park, televised by FOX. Eight-time All-Star and Hall of Famer John Smoltz will join Joe Buck in the broadcast booth, with Tom Verducci and Ken Rosenthal working the sidelines. If you’re into this sort of thing, the MLB All-Star Red Carpet Show starts at 1 p.m. MT on MLB Network and runs until game time.

The Rockies are send four players (most in team history) to Miami: Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon, DJ LeMahieu, and Greg Holland. Nolan and Chuck will be in the starting lineup while DJ (injury) and Holland (“Closer”) may or may not get into the game.

The All-Star Game is always a fun experience, even if the game itself doesn’t turn out to be all that exciting. The game no longer “counts” for home field advantage in the World Series. While one can appreciate the desire to juice up the All-Star Game, it’s best as a collegial exhibition between the biggest stars and top performers of the season.

The National League, hosting the game for the third year in a row, will cycle back to the home team for this year’s game.
