For the first time since 2019, fans will have the opportunity to enjoy the Summer Classic festivities.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there was no All-Star Game, Home Run Derby, Celebrity Softball Game, or Futures Game. But now in 2021, Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, will host all events once again.
The events will span several days, with supports for the Home Run Derby announced Wednesday, the futures game scheduled for Sunday along with the start of the draft, derby, and softball game scheduled for Monday, and the All-Star Game scheduled for Tuesday.
Here’s the full schedule of what to expect during the various days of baseball action.

Participants of MLB Home Run Derby 2021
The Home Run Derby will feature eight players competing in a support style, trying to hit as many home runs as possible in a four-minute span. If batters can hit at least two baseballs over 440 feet, they can add an additional 30 seconds to their time to keep swinging. The four winners of the first round matchups will advance to the semi-finals, where they will compete for places in the final.
