MLB All-Star Game start time, channel

The MLB All-Star Game 2021 live stream is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET / 4:30 p.m. PT / 12:30 a.m. BST today (July 13).
It will air on FOX, which you can watch on Sling TV, currently on sale down to $10 for the first month.

It's time for the MLB All-Star Game 2021 live stream, and everyone's talking about the man who will appear on both sides of the mound: the Angels star Shohei Ohtani. Yes, the ace/home run kingpin didn't win last night's Home Run Derby, but he's been the most entertaining man in the MLB regardless. 

And so we're not at all surprised to see the man who turned many an MLB live stream into a highlight reel excerpt work the midsummer classic as both hitter and pitcher. It's just a bit shocking that this is the first time that's ever happened in the history of the game.

Trying to figure out prop-bets to take? We're not betters ourselves, but we'd stay away from the "no runs in the first inning" bet. As tantalizing as it may be to think Ohtani will go yard in his first at-bat, it's not exactly a sure thing. Also, we'd take the under over the over, but then again, we're not betting tonight.

Unfortunately, the rosters (see below) have a few crossed-out players, due to injury and scheduling difficulties with their teams. Those include Mets ace Jacob DeGrom, who had led the league in ERA and K:BB ratio in early July, who is sitting out to keep his body healthy for the second half of the season. DeGrom will be replaced by the Mets' Taijuan Walker.

Per the oddsmakers at BetMGM, the AL team is the narrow favorite at -105, while the NL is at -115. That means you'd need to bet $105 to win $100 for the AL, and $115 to win $100 for the NL. Which means, yes, this is practically a toss-up.

Last night, Pete Alonso was the star of the Home Run Derby, where Ohtani got bounced in round 1. Alonso went yard a total of 35 times in the first round alone, an opening round record (the third most for any round ever). Juan Soto set the record for longest home run, though, with a shot that went 520 feet. 

How to avoid MLB All-Star Game blackouts with a VPN

If you've had to leave your own "bubble" -- and you can't watch MLB All-Star Game live streams on cable, you're not out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well. Here are our top picks.
