CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) – The MLB All Star game will be in Cleveland in a little under 2 weeks.
Before the big game fans will get the chance to see more than 70 of baseball’s finest parade through the streets of downtown Cleveland.
The free event will begin downtown at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 9.
Per Major League Baseball:
The parade starts on Lakeside Avenue and West Mall Drive, weaving between PLAY BALL PARK on Malls B and C.
All-Stars are set to travel east on Lakeside before turning down East 9th Street in their Chevrolet Silverados and heading towards Progressive Field.
The parade winds down after one mile at the ballpark’s Right Field Gate near the corner of East 9th and Larry Doby Way (Eagle Avenue).
Former Cleveland Indians’ Jim Thome and Sandy Alomar Jr. will lead the way as grand marshals ahead of the ceremony.
