A little over a month after the Stanley Cup Final ended, another big sporting event is on its way to DC.
Early next week, the Nationals will play host to the MLB All-Star Game. This is the fifth time the All-Star game will be hosted in the Nation’s Capital, but the first time since 1969 when the Senators hosted.
The city is going all out to promote baseball, including an awesome exhibit on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The MLB unveiled life-sized displays of all the 2018 All-Stars. The displays which look like a life-sized game of Guess Who?, are split into American (red) and National (blue) league teams. The exhibit can be found at Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Washington DC was named as the host city on April 6, 2015. At the time, the Navy Yard/Ballpark area was still being development and the MLB wanted to wait a few years. Now, with restaurants, hotels, and activities open, the area is ready to host the influx of visitors.
