MLB All-Star Game live score, updates, highlights from baseball’s 2021 Midsummer Classic


The Midsummer Classic returns for 2021.

The 2020 All-Star Game was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving baseball fans without a chance to see all of the game’s top talents come together on the same field to compete. This year, the game is back. 

And is it ever back.

This year’s game will show off Shohei Ohtani’s dynamic two-way abilities and the explosive athleticism of Fernando Tatis Jr. — and that’s just what’s coming from the teams’ two leadoff hitters. The game will also feature the exciting talents of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the hard-hitting AL lineup taking on Max Scherzer and the nasty NL pitching staff. 

Sporting News is tracking live scoring updates and highlights from the 2021 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night. Follow below for complete results from baseball’s Midsummer Classic.
