Celebs in crowd at Dodger Stadium


LOS ANGELES — It was star-studded MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night – on and off the field.

With the likes of Aaron Judge, Mookie Betts and Shohei Ohtani putting their talents display at Dodger Stadium during the 92nd All-Star Game, the sellout crowd of 52,518included Denzel Washington, Magic Johnson, Billie Jean King and a host of other celebrities.

OK, so no Kardashians, Kanye West or Brad Pitt.

But actor Jon Hamm, comedian Tiffany Haddish, actors Jason Bateman and Miles Teller, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, former NFL star Terrell Owens and NFLPA head DeMaurice Smithwere on hand. So were Warriors co-owner Peter Guber, race car team owner Chip Ganassi, actor Michael Chiklis, former soccer star Alexi Lalas, and US men’s national soccer team coach Gregg Berhalter and midfielder Kellyn Acosta.

Washington — wearing a No. 42 Dodgers jersey — participated in a pregame ceremony honoring Jackie Robinson, a Pasadena native who attended UCLA and played for the Dodgers when the team was based in Brooklyn. There is a statue honoring Robinson outside Dodger Stadium.

Actor Denzel Washington waves to the crowd before giving a speech about Jackie Robinson before the 2022 MLB All Star Game at Dodger Stadium.

By now, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is familiar with the sight of glitterati.
