Lumen Field, the home of the Seattle Seahawks, will host the 2023 Major League Baseball draft, MLB announced Monday.

The draft is part of the festivities of the MLB All-Star Game, which will be played at T-Mobile Park, the home of the Mariners. The area surrounding Lumen Field, across the street from the Mariners’ stadium, is playing a role in the game week festivities.

The first round of the draft is set for July 9. The All-Star Game will be played July 11.

The Pittsburgh Pirates hold the No. 1 pick, followed by the Washington Nationals, Detroit Tigers, Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins.

Two LSU players, outfielder Dylan Crews and right-hander Paul Skenes, could be the first teammates selected Nos. 1 and 2 in the draft.
