Round Rock, Texas, will host the 2021 Triple-A All-Star Game, presented by Dell Technologies. The game and its ancillary events will be held at Dell Diamond, home of the Round Rock Express. It will be the first time the game is held in Round Rock.
“We could not be more excited to bring the Triple-A All-Star Game to Dell Diamond in 2021,” Express President Chris Almendarez said. “This is one of the biggest baseball-related events to take place in Round Rock’s storied history and we’re anxious to get to show off our great city and ballpark to our friends across Minor League Baseball.”
All-Star Week festivities will include the Triple-A Home Run Derby and an All-Star luncheon. Specific dates and other related events will be announced at a later date.
“The Pacific Coast League is extremely pleased to have voted Round Rock to host the 2021 Triple-A All-Star Game,” Pacific Coast League President Branch Rickey said. “This has become a summer highlight for both leagues and an opportunity to show off our premier players. Our television coverage gives national display to one of our great Triple-A ballparks, adding a crowning luster regardless of which league wins the game.”
The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, will host the event in 2020.
“As the ‘Sports Capital of Texas,’ we are honored and excited to partner with the Express to host fans and players of the best teams in Triple-A Baseball,” Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan said. “With the opening of Kalahari Resorts and Conventions on the horizon, Round Rock looks forward to hosting an All-Star experience to remember.”
