The 2011 MLB All-Star Game is coming up on Tuesday night, July 12, 2011, from Chase Field in Phoenix, the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. And we at Bleacher Report have you covered when it comes to the Midsummer Classic.

We have the suggested starters at every position based on their first-half performances.

We have the players leading the voting at every position as of June 27.

We have the biggest All-Star snubs in recent memory.

We even have the full rosters for both the American and National Leagues already filled out by one plucky writer.

But what we don't yet have is the basic information.

The pregame festivities for the All-Star Game on Tuesday night are set to get underway around 5 p.m. local time (8 p.m. ET) live on FOX. But that's far from the only thing worth following in Phoenix, says MLB.com.

There will be a FanFest that begins the Saturday before that, not to mention a Futures Game showcasing the game's best young talent on Sunday as well as a celebrity softball game Sunday and the Home Run Derby on Monday night.

The Home Run Derby will also be televised nationally on ESPN—on Monday, July 11, at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. local time in Phoenix)—and that's always a can't miss event.

So stick with us for everything you could possibly want to know about the 2011 MLB All-Star Game. Here's hoping it's a Midsummer Classic that truly lives up to its nickname.
