Didn't see this mentioned yet, Bob Castellini mentioned on 700wlw this morning that they would be getting the all star game in the near future. He couldn't say which year yet, but its coming soon.

More than likely 2015 would be the next chance. They usually play in an AL park one year and an NL park the next. So it is in KC this year and I believe Citi Field next year. So if the Reds are getting it soon it would probably be 2015.

I swear I looked for a thread on this before starting one, and did not see it...

Correct, When Sabo was a rookie all-star.

2024: Votto DHing for AL as only team representative for the Blue Jays.

2015 is already rumored to be Washington's, so more than likely has to be 2017.

The ballpark would be 14 years old. I guess they would do a facelift in the year or two before the game.

Won't we still be in awe of the digital menus in 2K17?

I still can't believe we built a new park and it took that long to get an AS game. Literally if it's in five years, hard to be excited. Our players will all be aging, would have hoped we get one in 3 years, period.

Selig and MLB pours salt in Cincinnati's wounds by announcing New York will host the 2013 All-Star game while the Reds are in town.

Makes sense to award it to the franchise that is in abysmal shape financially I guess? What an asinine idea.

Now that Washington has Harper they'll probably get one before us also

My friend made a bet with me a few years ago that the Yankees would get the ASG again before the Reds do. I'm starting to think I might lose.

I didn't think the Reds were bidding for the 2013 game but instead want the 2015 game. By 2015, The Banks will be done, the streetcar running by the ballpark and a couple more hotels will be open around downtown. I'm sure the Reds would prefer the game then.

The team that will be infuriating if they get it is the Marlins. Miami has never really supported that team and if they get the game in 2015 they would have it just three years after their park opens while the Reds continue to wait.

The Dodgers will likely be in the mix by then (last hosted in 1980), depends on if the new ownership group spruces the stadium up.

Marlins and Padres too.

Yep. I went to that one 1988. It's a great experience if anyone has a chance to go.

DC needs to attract more business/restaurants around the ballpark before MLB brings an All Star game to town. There's virtually nothing close to the park now. They are working on some things nearby and could have enough by 2015 to satisfy MLB. But my guess would be 2017. My thinking is 2015 may setup just right for Cincy to host it.

I went in 1988. Would love to take my daughter in 2015.
