2019 Winner: Western Division

Eastern League All-Star Game TicketsThe Eastern League All-Star Game is an exciting showcase of the top talent from across the northeast teams of Minor League Baseball. Every year, the Eastern and Western Divisions meet at the mid-point of the season to entertain fans and compete against each other for bragging rights. Formed in 1923, the Eastern League currently consists of 12 total teams — six per division — across nine different states. Minor League Baseball functions as a farm system for the majors. Each team is affiliated with a different MLB club, which can transfer players to and from the lower ranks at will. Unlike its MLB counterpart, however, the Eastern League All-Star game does not affect the postseason in any way, but it does offer an exciting week of baseball. If you want to catch some of the top players in the minors, you should purchase Eastern League All-Star Game tickets at StubHub.
When does the Eastern League All-Star Game take place?The 2020 Eastern League All-Star Game will take place July 15 at the NYSEG Stadium, the home of the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, an affiliate of the New York Mets. It is the first time that the area has hosted the event since 1994. Players will get to enjoy a rare, league-wide day off on July 13. This is followed by the start of ASG activities. The Eastern League Home Run Derby, which showcases the best power hitters in the league, will take place on the 14th. Get more information about the Eastern League All-Star Game schedule at StubHub.
Who participates in the All-Star Game?The All-Star Game features the top players from across the Eastern League, as determined by fans, media members and managers. The full roster will be announced in the weeks leading up to the game. Every year, the roster for each team features 26 players, including 11 pitchers and 15 position players. Some of the top prospects in baseball are featured in the All-Star Game. Even though Double-A baseball is technically the second tier of the minor leagues, many players make the leap directly to the majors from this level. A total of 44 former Eastern League players now reside in the Baseball Hall of Fame, including Nolan Ryan, Warren Spahn, Mike Schmidt, Whitey Ford and Greg Maddux.
Who was the winner of the previous All-Star Game?The 2019 All-Star Game took place on July 10 in Richmond, Va. The Western Division beat the Eastern Division by a score of 5-0. Left fielder Jacob Heyward from the hometown Richmond Flying Squirrels had a hit and two runs.
How large is the venue for the Eastern League All-Star Game?The host of the 2020 All-Star Game, the NYSEG Stadium, has an approximate seating capacity of 6,000 spectators across two levels. The dimensions of the park are 400 feet to center field and 330 feet to both left and right field. The scoreboard is located in the right center field area.
What is the Eastern League All-Star Game like?Because the All-Star Game is hosted by a different team each year, the details of the game are subject to change from season to season. However, the ASG always cultivates a fun, congenial, less-competitive atmosphere compared to regular season baseball games. Though the starting roster is limited to the top players, most position players may only get a few innings — and pitchers no more than an inning — before being replaced by another all-star. So, fans will get a chance to see almost everyone.
