The All-Star Showcase will feature elite baseball stars from around the globe, including former Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius and Robinson Cano, who now co-owns and plays in the new Baseball United league. Other notable participants include former Mets and Yankees pitcher Bartolo Colon, and MLB legends Barry Larkin, Adrian Beltre, Felix Hernandez, Mariano Rivera, and Nick Swisher. This illustrious lineup promises to bring high-level baseball action to the Dubai International Stadium.

Building a Legacy

The All-Star Showcase is the precursor to the United International Baseball League's inaugural season, set to commence in November and December 2024. This first-ever professional baseball league in the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent is a testament to Baseball United's mission to cultivate the sport in these regions. The league is likely to draw talent from countries like Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Uganda, and Palestine, further expanding the baseball community.

This initiative by Baseball United signifies a concerted effort to foster a love for baseball in new territories, create opportunities for aspiring players, and ultimately, shape the future of the sport on a global scale.
