The All-Star Game Comes to Washington

Evening Program

Wednesday, July 11, 2018 - 6:45 p.m.
Code: 1B0266

Our very own Nationals Park is set to host the All-Star game on July 17, and Washington will be packed with events leading up to that event. So now is your chance to chat about all-things-Washington baseball, past and present, with an all-star lineup of experts managed by veteran attorney and sportscaster Phil Hochberg, who was the stadium announcer for the 1962 game.

Gregory McCarthy from the Washington Nationals is on hand to discuss all the events and expectations of All-Star week.

Sports author Fred Frommer has all the history of the four other All-Star games played in D.C., as well as endless baseball trivia.

And batting cleanup, Washington Nationals’ analyst Phil Wood has been keeping a keen eye on Washington baseball since his childhood attending games at Griffith Stadium.

Come with questions, and—if you’re one of the lucky winners of our trivia contest—leave with your own baseball signed by former New York Yankees manager and Hall-of-Famer Joe Torre.
