While we get closer to this potential 81-82 game season likely happening, there are still an abundance of questions about what comes next for the Dodgers and baseball. One of the big questions as it relates to the Dodgers and Los Angeles is the status of the All-Star game.
Moreover, as it stands, it might be a bit of a “no news is bad news” situation. This is something that Bill Shaikin of the LA Times addressed on Monday.
While Gov. Newsom's comments last week make it unlikely that the All-Star Game would be played as scheduled July 14 at Dodger Stadium, I'm told the MLB proposal to be voted on by owners today and then presented to players "doesn't address the All-Star Game at all."

Reports have surfaced that internally the Dodgers are already expecting the midsummer classic to be canceled and that the club is optimistic that LA would be able to get the game again by 2022 at the earliest. Officially, the Dodgers are saying that “All-Star week is not currently impacted by the delayed start to the season.
The Atlanta Braves have already been promised the 2021 event.
Another contest that has been affected by the pandemic is the World Baseball Classic, which is now reportedly close to being canceled. Bob Nightengale mentioned 2023 or 2025 as potential return dates for the fifth edition of the event.
