The All-Star Game is not the only notable MLB event this month. In fact, the league will host several worthwhile ballpark outings from July 16–19. We’ve outlined the biggest MLB All-Star Week events in the table below—including which channels and streaming platforms have live coverage.

Event Date Time (ET) Channels
MLB All-Star Futures Game July 16, 2022 7:00 p.m. Peacock

MLB All-Star Game July 19, 2022 7:30 p.m. FOX

The MLB All-Star Celebrity Softball Game is sure to be a good time. The celebrity roster is as random as it gets, featuring Bad Bunny, Rob Lowe, and JoJo Siwa. If you miss the live game, MLB Network will reair the star-studded event on Monday, July 18, at 10:30 p.m. eastern.

While MLB Network will also have Day 1 coverage of the MLB Draft, you can stream the remaining two days on MLB.com from July 18–19.

Another major event to keep your eye on is the 2022 Home Run Derby. MLB’s heavy hitters will step up to the plate on Monday, July 18 at 8:00 p.m. eastern to prove who is the most dominant slugger. Pete Alonso is the two-time reigning derby winner, but can he pull a Ken Griffey Jr. and make it three?

How to watch the MLB All-Star Game for free

With the 2022 MLB All-Star Game airing on FOX, you can tune in for free using an over-the-air (OTA) antenna. The antenna itself isn’t free, but the one-time purchase will grant you free access to every local channel within range.

Our favorite indoor antennas cost around $20–$60, which is a great investment for baseball fans. After all, you’ll need FOX again to watch select MLB playoff games and the entire 2022 World Series. Even the upcoming MLB at Field of Dreams game is on FOX, so you might as well go the distance and get an antenna.

We recommend the Mohu Leaf 50 ($57.65 on Amazon)* for its 60-mile range and included amplifier. But you can check out other great antennas on our Best Antennas for Cord-Cutters page.

Pro tip: You can verify which local channels are within the range of your home by entering your zip code in the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Reception Map Tool.

If you’re looking for more MLB All-Star Week coverage, head to our Best Streaming Services for Sports guide. There, you’ll find a wide variety of live TV streaming services that offer MLB Network and ESPN. Some services—like fuboTV and YouTube TV—even offer free trials that you can take advantage of for the Midsummer Classic.

MLB All-Star Game rosters

As the American League All-Stars face off against the National League All-Stars, each team will feature a 33-player roster. That’s one roster spot more than usual because of a new rule implemented in the league’s recent collective bargaining agreement.

From now on, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred will select a legacy player from each conference. The St. Louis Cardinals’ Albert Pujols and Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera are the 2022 legacy selections.
