Major League Baseball has arrived at its midpoint and All-Star break. The Home Run Derby takes place tonight, and baseball’s brightest stars will play in the All-Star Game on Tuesday. Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles will host both events, and there are few settings better for watching baseball than the stadium at Chavez Ravine.
The Home Run Derby is set for Monday at 5 p.m. PT (8 p.m. ET) on ESPN, and the MLB All-Star Game will start on Tuesday at 5 p.m. PT (8 p.m. ET) on Fox. Here’s how you can watch all of the festivities without cable.

Eight sluggers will battle it out tonight to determine baseball’s home run champ. Pete Alonso of the New York Mets is looking to be the first player to win three straight Derbies. At 42 years old, Albert Pujols will be the oldest to partake in the Derby.
