The 90th annual All-Star Game is in Cleveland this year.

Icon Sportswire

We have reached the midway point of the 2019 MLB regular season. As is their time-honored tradition, Major League Baseball's biggest star players will take a break from the daily grind of the 162-game marathon for a few days to participate in the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby

This year, the All-Star festivities will take place in Cleveland. The Home Run Derby was last night, and the All-Star Game is tonight. After the show Vlad Guerrero Jr., Joc Pederson and Pete Alonso put on in the Derby (Best. Derby. Ever.), hopefully there are more fireworks in store for the All-Star Game this evening.

Here's how cord cutters can watch all of the All-Star action.

How can I watch if I don't have cable?

You can livestream the All-Star Game on FoxSports.com and the Fox Sports app, but you will need to prove you have a pay TV subscription. 

If you don't have a cable or satellite TV subscription, then you can watch with a live-TV streaming service but will need to make sure you can get a live feed for the All-Star Game. In some markets, you can watch on-demand but not live content from Fox and the other local networks.
