MLB unveils logo for 2024 All-Star Game in Texas

The MLB All-Star Game has grown into a truly Texas-sized event since the last time the Rangers hosted the Midsummer Classic, and the countdown to next year’s festivities continues.

Major League Baseball and the Rangers unveiled the 2024 All-Star Game logo Thursday at GlobeLife Field, the retractable-roof stadium across the street from the open-air facility where the 1995 All-Star Game was played in extreme heat. The logo for the July 16 game features an outline of Texas and is punctuated with the All-Star state’s signature star.

“That Major League Baseball All-Star Game has been an uptick in activity all week,” said Chuck Morgan, the Rangers’ longtime public address announcer. “The All-Star experience has changed a lot since that game at The Ballpark in Arlington.”

Globe Life Field debuted in 2020, when the Rangers played their first season without fans there due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The stadium hosted the 2020 World Series, with limited fans, followed by the NL Division Series and the NL Championship Series.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said the Rangers’ stadium is an “incredibly state-of-the-art facility” and that the league feels a special commitment to the stadium and Texas owner Ray Davis to host the postseason at a neutral site.

“When you think back to that time, Texas, Arlington, the Rays and the Rangers really stepped up in a moment that was tough to host,” Manfred said. “We have really thanked the club.”

This year’s All-Star Game was held last week in Seattle. The last time it was in Texas was in 2004 at Minute Maid Park in Houston.
