Major League Baseball made it official Friday cancelling the 2020 MLB All-Star Game that was scheduled to take place this month in Los Angeles. The Atlanta Braves and Truist Park were already announced as the host for the 2021 game so the Dodgers will be in line for 2022.

Major League Baseball teams returned to work on Friday as summer camp officially opened around the league. The Braves will be meeting in different groups throughout the day at Truist Park with small groups of players working out at the stadium.

The 60-game regular season is scheduled to begin around July 23 and 24 and the actual schedule could be released as soon as next week.
