St Louis hasnt had an All Star game since the 1966. The Reds have hosted two games in that time. Improbus hit the nail on the head. With 30 teams in the league, the Reds shouldnt have hosted another game since 1988 yet. You cant host the game every ten or even twenty years even though we would enjoy that very much. It has nothing to do with Pete Rose for crying out loud.
