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

By | July 9, 2021

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:
