That would be great. although if I wanted to attend, a pair of tickets would easily be a grand.

Looks like they're just using that same Cincinnati Enquirer article as a source, though. I'll still wait til Wednesday to get to excited- I am a Cincinnati sports fan, after all!

Drew Stubbs traded and now this.

Awesome


I did some research. For about $800-$1,000you can get a decent seat for the ASG, HR Derby and FanFest

The HR Derby isn't quite as expensive as I thought....but figure on $250 a seat for somewhat decent seats. The ASG is more.

My goal is to save up for 6 pretty good ASG tickets, 4 HR Derby and 4 FanFest....looking around $3500

A big thanks to Bob Castellini for pushing to get the all-star game back in Cincinnati. The downtown is really shaping up nicely and will be highlighted during this prestigous event. Big news for the city and Reds fans.

Nice reporting by Fay as well.

the home run derby will be insane. unlike some years when some people get no home runs everyone will and a lot of them.

Interesting tweets from @ctrent. Saying MLB offered 2019, but Bob kept fighting for one sooner. Also said that the Marlins were expected to get 2015. Wonder if the recent firesale had anything to do with it?

I was lucky enough to go to the All-Star game in San Francisco. Went to the whole week of activities (Fanfest, HR Derby, Futures Game, Celebrity Softball) It was easily the best experience I've had as a baseball fan (It didn't hurt that I got to see Griffey play in it). I'm still waiting for that experience to be topped by a Reds World Series. The wife already told me that when/if they make it, she's paying "whatever it takes" for tickets

Its about damn time. That stadium isn't even new anymore. Pirates, Cardinals, Houston, Giants, and detroit all got their all star games in the same decade their stadiums were built. Cincy should have got the all star game 4 years ago

I am excited about this. I would have been five the last time Cincy hosted one. My son will be three by this time to bad he wouldn't be a couple of years older.

Yeah, that.

Weren't they initially promised it within 5 years or so of building GABP?

Can't wait, I'm pretty psyched about it. From the sound of the potential ticket prices, it may have to be the fam summer vacation.

Completely agree. Miami should not be in consideration. It is not a baseball town and the owners, well, despite their WS wins, their history speaks for itself.

Loria has no respect for the fans or the city, he fleeced a tax-built stadim crying poverty and that he had no money to pay for it, then spent over $100 million in payroll...that is until they started the season poorly..then he traded away everybody except stanton.....MLB needs to step in.....new owners and ban him from owning a team again...i would say force the team to move, but that would screw over the people in Miami paying for that ugly albatross of a stadium (even more than they have been)......

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^This X a gazillion!^^^^^^^^^^^

The debacle that is the Marlins franchise hurts the other 29 MLB teams - it is a sham that HAS to end IMO. As much as I am in favor of the free market system in this country, disrespectful actions like this need to be taken care of.

I'm thinking Mike Marino and his "2 guys from Jersey" approach right now...

I guess MLB finally felt sorry for us and the stadium. Thanks Mr. Linder.

Glad it is going to be in Cincy but I would rather spend big money on a post season game. Would be cool to go to though.

As an out of town fan, I agree. But the entire weekend of activities and spotlight on baseball and Cincinnati certainly is a boon for the town and team.


btw, anybody who has missed it should check out the redleg nation memeber reports on the Reds Caravan stops. Some fun stuff, and glad to see it here as I won't be driving for any of those events -- but sure makes me ready for baseball!

I agree to a degree, but that being said an All Star game in your city is more rare than a playoff game. Even with our rich history of playoff appearances in the last twenty years.

They are going to be gunning for the river. At least out of the stadium.

Have any balls besides Dunn's epic blast that landed on the driftwood in the Ohio ever gone out of the stadium?

I'm almost certain the answer to your question is no.

Didn't Juan Francisco clear the seats a couple seasons ago?

EDIT: looked it up...september 2011 502 feet, hit the road outside the stadium
