"Once it became clear we were unable to hold this year's All-Star festivities, we wanted to award the Dodgers with the next available All-Star Game, which is 2022," MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. "I want to thank the Dodgers organization and the City of Los Angeles for being collaborative partners in the early stages of All-Star preparation and for being patient and understanding in navigating the uncertainty created by the pandemic. The 2022 All-Star celebration promises to be a memorable one with events throughout the city and at picturesque Dodger Stadium."

The 2021 All-Star Game will be played in Atlanta.

The list of players is extensive but includes Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, Corey Kluber, Paul Goldschmidt, and Giancarlo Stanton. Other players who participated included Luke Jackson, Logan Morrison, Richard Bleier, Robert Gsellman, Michael Wacha, Josh James, Taylor Guerrieri, Brian Moran, Mike Brosseau, Ryan LaMarre, Steve Cishek, Nick Wittgren, Brad Hand, Zach Plesac, Anthony Swarzak, Monte Harrison, Isan Díaz, Jordan Holloway, Austin Voth, Kyle McGowin, Tyler Kinley, Kyle Barraclough, A.J. Ramos, Kevin Siegrist, Triston McKenzie, and Jesús Luzardo. Noah Syndergaard also did his rehab work at the facility.

Per Ghiroli, the players implemented their own rules to reduce potential transmission of the virus as much as possible, implementing rules that included no sliding and distancing as much as possible. So far, no one who was at Cressey’s facilities has tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Though it is worth mentioning that it is not known how many of those players were tested and at which frequencies.
