MLB All-Star celebrity softball game 2021: Roster includes DK Metcalf, Quavo & more famous names


There’s All-Stars and then there’s just stars.

A staple of MLB All-Star weekend, the 2021 All-Star celebrity softball game is going to be held Sunday afternoon and broadcast Monday night following the Home Run Derby, for those willing to stick around and watch some amateurs chuck a ball into the dirt and have the running form of a toddler with their shoelaces tied together.

They’re not all athletically inept, though: The five-inning contest features some MLB greats taking the field, with a group of very young, fresh look celebrities rounding out the rosters for this year’s  spectacle.

While celebrity stalwarts like WWE Superstar The Miz return, Kane Brown and JoJo Siwa are just two of the first-timers on the star-studded lineup who are taking the field at Coors field Sunday. Here’s the total confirmed list of stars expected to make appearances:

This year’s slate of players is definitely geared to a newer, younger generation: With social media stars Noah Beck and Blake Gray making appearances, as well as JoJo Siwa.

Former MLB players CC Sabathia, Hunter Pence, Larry Walker and Vinny Castilla will also partake in the game. Walker and Castilla are former members of the Rockies and will once again take the field in Denver.

As is custom, the celebrity softball game is set to air following the Home Run Derby on Monday night. The game itself will be played on Sunday afternoon.
